St. Jean’s Smoked Oysters have been a staple of our business for 50 years. In fact, it’s the product that got us started!

 

We take Vancouver Island-bred oysters and smoke them with natural hardwood smoke in-house in Nanaimo. When canned, we take care to ensure they retain their natural nectar, which leads to unrivaled taste and texture. And since we’ve been smoking oysters since 1962, we’re confident that our oysters are unmatched!

 

St. Jean’s is proud to be the only cannery in western Canada that cans smoked oysters. Try them today!

 

 St. Jean’s Oyster Facts:  General Oyster Facts:
  • We do not remove the oyster nectar from our smoked oysters. This ensures that the taste and texture of our oysters are unrivaled to the overseas brands often carried by large retailers.

 

  • St. Jean’s Cannery & Smokehouse is the only processing plant in Western Canada canning smoked oysters.

 

  • We use only Vancouver Island bred Pacific oysters, smoked with natural local hardwood and hand-packed into 70g cans
  • Oysters are an excellent source of zinc, iron, calcium, and selenium, as well as Vitamin A and Vitamin B12.

 

  • Unlike most shellfish, oysters can have a fairly long shelf life. St. Jean’s Canned Smoked Oysters have a shelf life of roughly 5-8 years.

 

  • It is suggested that oysters could be an aphrodisiac. Whether true or false, researchers have found that oysters are rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones–possibly due to their high zinc content.

 

 

History: St. Jean’s Cannery & Smokehouse was founded on smoked oysters! In 1962, Armand St. Jean started smoking pacific oysters at home in Nanaimo and sold them in local bars. They were sold in little plastic baggies with a card labled “St. Jean’s Smudgies Oysters.”
