How to shuck an Oyster

Shucking oysters is done with a shucking knife – a knife specifically used for opening oysters that is stubby, blunt sturdy and pointed. 

step 1

Cover one hand with a folded tea towel and use this hand to hold the oyster on the table so that the flatter top shell is facing upwards and the hinge is exposed.

step 2

Insert the shucking knif into the hinge end and wiggle it carefully to lever the top shell up.

step 3

Run the knife along the inside of the top shell to cut the muscle attaching the oyster to the shell.Discard the top shell.

step 4

Run the knife underneath the oyster to detach it from the bottom shell. The oyster is now ready to eat raw or to be cooked.
