    If you are sensitive to shellfish, then any contact with it... whether by eating it or by breathing in airborne fumes/dust from it... can potentially cause an allergic reaction that could be severe. So I would urge extreme caution in using the oyster sauce. Cooking while wearing a HEPA-filter equipped mask might help prevent a reaction.


    Talk with your allergist if you really want to be sure you're not doing anything that may be harmful.
