Fresh Oysters Ingredients

  • 12 pieces Oysters
  • 1/4 Cup Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons onion finely chopped
  • Salt
  • lime wedges


  • Scrub the shells using a stiff brush.
  • To shuck: Hold the oyster, deep shell down, with a napkin on your hand. Insert the tip of a knife into the hinge between the shells at the pointed end of the oyster. Turn the knife to pry open and lift the upper shell enough to cut through the hinge muscle. Run the knifepoint between the shells to open.
  • Once open, scrape the oyster from its shell, but do not remove it. Nestle the shells in some rock salt.
  • In a small bowl, mix together vinegar, onions, black pepper, and salt to taste. Serve vinegar sauce and lime wedges on the side.
