Croatia is blessed to have two first-class locations where oysters are grown: Lim Channel in Istria and Ston in southern Dalmatia. For some people, those coming from Ston are among the best in the world. March and April are the best season to enjoy this delicacy. Eat them raw, only with a slice of lemon and good wine, and savour the taste of the sea.
