How to Open an Oyster

An oyster knife (also called an oyster shucker or oyster opener) is key to opening fresh oysters. Oyster knives can be purchased at most cutlery stores, and are important tools when shucking oysters. 

Shucked oysters should be enjoyed immediately after opening, served with a wedge of fresh lemon or a shallot mignonette. You can also try grilling them!
