How To For the Freshest Oysters
We strive our best to get you the freshest seafood in Melbourne, but lets say you want the absolute freshest oysters possible, no problem. In this post we are going to teach you all about shucking oysters and why you should do it yourself.
Why a un-shucked Oyster over a shucked one?
To put it in Lamens terms a shucked oyster is a dead Oyster, once you shuck an Oyster and turn it over, you have killed the Oyster. An un-shucked oyster however remains alive in its shell until you open it and cut the Oyster out of its shell.
How To Shuck Your Oysters
Most common practice to suck and Oyster is to put the Oster knife in the hinge of the Oyster and twist, below is an example to this common method.

Pick Lock Method
The Shuck & Suck Method
This is the bonus method and my favourite method. This method is more of a hands-on experience for your guests. The coronary experience for everyone will be amazing and you yourself dont have to worry about shucking a bunch of Oysters. Let your guests shuck their own Oysters as they please. This will allow everyone an experience that will be talked about for years to come and also no Oysters go to waste.
