1. Place oyster flat side up on a cutting board or hold it in a towel and find the rear hinge where the top half of the shell meets the bottom.​

2. Carefully insert a thick-bladed oyster knife into the hinge and give it a twist. You’ll hear a pop as the hinge separates.​

3. Run the blade of the knife along the inside of the shell, severing the muscle attached to the top shell. Remove and discard the top shell.​

4. With the oyster exposed, run the knife beneath it to sever the bottom muscle.

 

Plate oyster on ice and enjoy.​

There are many ways that people open oysters to get to the good stuff inside. The best way to shuck  is in a way that keeps the meat intact and presents the oyster perfectly, ready to slurp straight from the shell.​

Shucking can be dangerous, and as speed and numbers increase, so does the risk — hence the chain-mail gloves made just for this task. All you need is a clean, dry kitchen towel, a good oyster knife, and a modicum of good sense.​

POP • POKE • SLIDE • WIGGLE • SLURP!​
