Oyster Shucking Tip

Simple Tip: Soak Oysters in Cold Water Before Shucking

One way to affordably enjoy farm-raised oysters is to purchase them at the grocery store and eat them at home. The only problem is, you have to shuck the oysters beforehand! To make shucking quicker, take a tip from my local fishmonger and give the oysters a cold bath. Fill a large bowl with cold water and salt liberally, then add the oysters and soak for 10 minutes. This will liven them up and loosen the shells — making them easier to pop open.

I agree with Julie. I'm East Coast and have MANY oyster options. Each has it's own taste. Almost all come clean-to-eat. A quick rinse is all that's needed if that. Don't sacrifice their distinct flavor.
