2. Work over a bowl so that you can catch the oyster's juices, or be careful keeping the oyster flat in your hand
3. Insert a oyster knife between the oysters shell opening about 1/3 back from the wide end of the oyster.
4. Twist the knife carefully in the crack of the shell and pry the oyster shell open.
5. Go inside the oysters shell and cut around the bottem of the shell to cut the muscle free.
6. Remove the top shell and scrape the meat from the top shell into the bottom shell.
7. If successful you should be ready to serve it on the half shell!
Steaming Oysters in the Shell:
First start with a steaming or boiling pot with rack to keep Oysters above the boiling water.
Add one part water, one part vinegar, or beer so your mixture is just below the boiling rack.
Bring the liquid to a full boil.
Then layer your Oysters inside the pot adding seasoning or spices if desired for more flavor.
Cover and steam live oysters in the shell for 4 to 9 minutes after the shell opens. Enjoy!
Baked Oysters in the Shell:
Place your oysters cup side down on a cookie sheet to catch the liquid.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15-30 minutes, depending on the size.
Some shells will not be opened, so some prying will be necessary. Be careful if hot!
Oysters cooked cup side down will hold the liquid, making a jucier meat.
All of our Bay Oysters are only sold as they run and not by size.
Store at 40 degrees F in dry refrigeration.
Oysters can stay fresh and alive for up to two weeks after they are harvested.
