With my wife flying back home, I went out to do the shopping so we would not have to tomorrow. And to my amazement they Oysters had come in on the truck yesterday. Well what is a chef to do? Purchase oysters of
course. Darn lucky I did, her plane is being delayed and so she won't get in til after 8 PM tonight.
I washed the buggers off to get the sand out and the tagalongs off the outer shell.
Oysters on ICE, so much potential, what shall I do with them. Have them raw on the half shell of course! So I prepare to do the deed to the oysters, dispatching them quickly from living creature, to human food!
I like a heavy blade, sharp pointed, angle ground oyster knife with a big full tang handle. If I was going through these in the commercial kitchen I would put on the glove cause I would have about 200 to do. But at home
with six of them. I think I can manage not to lop off a finger.
This oyster is about to become food! Really really fresh food.
Since the wife's plane is delayed, I will sit down to a little snack and hold dinner til she gets home. So I will need a TsingTao as it is an excellent beer with oysters. Plus some real nice Queen olives I picked up. That [URL="
