Directions for: Oysters on the Half Shell


12 oysters in the shell

1 lemon

1 bottle hot sauce like Tabasco


1. Place the tip of your oyster knife into the tip of the hinge and twist to open. It may take you a few tries to get the technique, but once you do, it is easy.

2. Make sure to employ a towel over your hand. Once open, scrape the bottom and top muscles separately to loosen the flesh from the shell. Leave the mussel meat in the bottom shell.

3. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and hot sauce if you wish and slurp down, chewing if you want the full experience.
