Rockin’ Oysters is a mid-North Coast oyster farm that has been in operation since 2009. Recently, owner James Wood had a revelation: why not bring his award-winning oysters and other seafood directly to customers in the big smoke?
And so the Shuck Truck was born, selling fresh and cooked oysters, scallops, mussels, prawns and octopus.
The menu changes seasonally and currently features:
Oysters Veloute, Crab & Chives
Scallops Lemon, Chilli & Salt Bush Salsa
Scallops Pea, Jahmon Candy, & Chimmi Churri
North Coast Mussels Creole
Hawksbury BBQ Octopus with an Asian Papaya Salad
BBQ Sustainable Prawns Vietnamese Dipping Sauce
Bucket of Prawns
Truckin Good Platter (prawns, oysters, mussels, octopus)
Ocean Bun (Mixed seafood with lettuce and aioli)
The Shuck Truck aims to create a farm-to-plate experience and support local and organic produce both for seafood and the fruit and vegetable components of the dishes. Part of the truck’s design is a dry shucking bay so customers can see the process of preparing the oysters.
