oreille de lapin

[French] plural oreilles de lapin

Oysters that have been farmed may sometimes be misshapen, more long and thin and uniform in width than the classic fan shape of the rock oyster. These are sometimes called banana oysters (in France oreilles de lapin) and should be avoided. They are used commercially in prepared stews and soups in the United States.
