How To Cook Oysters
All you need to know about: How To Cook Oysters.
Prepping the Oysters
The first step in cooking oysters is prepping them. Start by scrubbing the oysters with a stiff brush to remove any dirt or barnacles that may be on the shells. Once you have scrubbed the oysters, use an oyster knife to pry open the shells. Cut the muscle that attaches the oyster to the top shell and discard the top shell. You should now be left with the oysters in the bottom shell.
Cooking the Oysters
There are several different methods for cooking oysters. The two most common are steaming and grilling.
For steaming, fill a large pot with a few inches of water and add a handful of rock salt. Bring the water to a boil and add the oysters. Cover the pot and steam the oysters for about 5 minutes or until the shells open. Remove the oysters from the pot and enjoy.
For grilling, preheat the grill to high heat. Place the oysters on the grill and cover with a lid. Grill the oysters for about 5 minutes or until the shells open. Remove the oysters from the grill and enjoy.
Serving the Oysters
Once you have cooked the oysters, you are ready to serve them. Serve the oysters on a bed of ice with lemon wedges and your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy!
