How to Shuck an Oyster from

Oysters are a wonderful seafood. You can enjoy them in so many different ways. You can put them right on the grill. They cook up nicely in their own little package. You can enjoy them fried, or in a sandwich. Use them in sauces and stir fries Oysters have a wide array of uses.

My favorite way to enjoy them is fresh and raw, right in the shell. The taste is almost indescribable. Wonderfully fresh with the taste of the ocean shining right through.

The problem with these bivalves is the difficulty in getting them out of their shell. You need to know how to shuck them.

If you are going to  open your own oysters, though you need the right tools. You need to have an oyster knife. The oyster knife needs to be made well with hardened steel. Accept no substitutes. You need a hardened steel oyster knife.

Here's what I recommend: Dexter-Russell 2-3/4-Inch Oyster Knife, Carbon Steel and Beechwood.

Here are the steps:
  1. Place your oyster on a board, flat side up. (You don't want to loose any of the juice)
  2. Wrap the oyster in a dish towel
  3. Put your oyster knife into the hinge and twist.
  4. Clean the top shell and use your knife to cut the oyster from the shell.
  5. Enjoy the taste of freshness!
