HOW TO OPEN AN OYSTER

Place the tip of a small knife in the creek which is about 2/3 of the oyster’s length. Push lightly until the two shells begin to separate. Pass along the edge of the oyster to completely separate the two valves.

HOW TO SERVE A OYSTER

After opening the oyster, remove the excess water and serve it on a layer of ice to bring it to the optimum temperature between 4 and 8°C. Consume no more than one hour from service.

STEAM COOKED OYSTERS

In a pot suitable for steaming, prepare the liquid cooking base with half water and half white wine or beer. Place the oysters closed in the basket and bring the liquid to boil, after which close the lid. Cook for 5 minutes until the oysters have all opened. Eliminate the oysters that have remained closed.

FRIED OYSTERS

With a small knife open the oysters, extract the mollusc and dry it very well. Beat 1 egg with a pinch of salt and add 2 tablespoons of water. Pass the oysters in the batter and then one by one in bread crumbs. Go over the oysters in the batter and again in the breadcrumbs. Leave the oysters to stand for a few minutes, in the meantime bring the peanut oil to a temperature of 180°C. Fry the oysters for about 3-4 minutes until completely browned, drain well and serve hot.
