Are Oysters Low Carb?

This is only the second oyster recipe on the site – the first being my low carb oyster gratin. The reason for this, as I mentioned in my guide to hidden carbs, oysters aren't as low in carbohydrates as other seafood. In this recipe I use a can of whole oysters that have been boiled in water. The drained weight of the oysters is 5 oz – and this contains 14g net carbs total. But make it into a dip to share, and you can still enjoy this briny gem of the sea!

What are the Health Benefits of Oysters?

Firstly, they're a great source of protein – with each oyster containing about 2g of protein. They're also a great source of vitamin D, copper, zinc, selenium, vitamin B12 and iron. In addition, a serving of three ounces of oysters provide more that one gram of omega-3 fatty acids.

How to Make a Low Carb Oyster Dip

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese (room temperature), mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic powder, and hot sauce. I recommend starting with one teaspoon of hot sauce and adding more to taste later if needed.

Oh and if you have any low carb Old Bay seasoning – a teaspoon of it would go very nicely here!

Drain and roughly dice the oysters.
