It once was the case that when the occasion called for an oyster platter, Sydney residents would have to devote hours to the process. Now it can all be done with a few keystrokes and a click or two.

The most time-consuming part of this process has always been deciding who you will trust with your oyster catering. Sydney is our home, and we pride ourselves on our reputation, which is why when you buy from Nicholas Online, you can buy with confidence.

Nicholas Seafood Always Offers Fresh Oyster Catering 

Quality matters to us at least as much as it does to you. Oysters are the natural addition to any catered party, offering a tasty and nutritious snack, as well as an elegant visual display. But of course you don't want to order your oysters from just anybody.

Oysters are a delicate product which must be respected; prepared and served with the utmost care, ensuring food safety, good taste, and an all-round high quality oyster platter. Sydney is the ideal place for fresh oysters. Sydney is a harbour city, after all, and our Sydney rock oysters are renowned throughout the world for many good reasons. As a local expert on everything related to seafood, Nicholas Seafood is the right choice for oyster delivery in Sydney.

For the best results, nothing but the freshest oysters will do.  Using fresh oysters provides superior taste. You can tell quite easily when a caterer is using oysters that are not at peak freshness, as the smell, taste, and appearance will be remarkably different to the required standard.

Preparation is the key to success. The oysters need to be cleaned, shucked, and arranged on the plate not a moment too soon before they are served, and of course it is important to keep them chilled at just the right temperature to maintain peak perfection.  Too cold, and the oysters will start to freeze, ruining the texture and flavour. When the temperature is not cold enough, you can potentially have much greater concerns as a result.

It's also important to make sure the arrangement is visually appealing, but there's actually more skill involved in putting together an oyster platter than meets the eye.  The second reason to ensure you choose only an expert oyster supplier is that when the oysters are arranged on the plate, the chef needs to be aware of air affects the product, and should arrange the oysters in such a way to create optimal air flow.

This is the thing about oysters that make them such a specialty product. Attention to detail and appropriate knowledge are vital to maintaining the highest level of quality.
