how to shuck an oyster


This is a few years old, but oysters dont change... Don Merry from Duxbury, MA (farmer to Island Creek Oysters) demonstrates shucking oysters by the lollipop method. Bam, now you know. Can do it with a bottle opener or screwdriver even. Nice tip about flipping it over too...

I like the way he (correctly) refers to a bottle opener as a church key. That makes it.

Skip Youtube and head to Mercato del Mare in the North End. They'll teach you how to shuck your own in the back of their store front. And if you're charming, they'll let you buy some beer from across the street to drink while you're eating oysters.
