    PRO TIPS

    Shuck Oysters

    To shuck an oyster, hold it cupped side down, with the hinge towards you. Insert a knife into the hinge and twist back and forth. Once the oyster is open, use the knife to detach the meat from the top shell. Then slice through the muscle that holds the oyster to the cup. (It can be a tough job. Practice makes perfect!)

    Select Great Oysters

    You want live oysters only. They should be closed or, if already open, they should close when the shell is tapped. Look for a briny and good heft, which means there’s still seawater inside. Wait to shuck until close to serving time, no more than an hour or so before.
