- Place the oyster in your palm, round side down and with the hinge side towards you.
- Push an oyster knife into the hinge side and pry the shells apart.
- Cut the valve muscle free from the top shell.
- Pour off the liquid, which is pure seawater.
- Now, cut the oyster and valve muscle free and turn over.
- The oyster will now produce its own juice, which will give it its delicate flavour.
- As an amuse-bouche.
- As a starter.
- As a component of a fruits de mer tasting platter.
