  • Just be sure to use fresh oysters and not bottled, canned or smoked oysters. We recommend that you buy the smallest oysters you can find.
  • The only science to enjoying oysters is to have a proper oyster opener and enough patience if you are out of practice.
  • Remember to immediately remove the shrimp and put them in cold water to stop the cooking process, this will prevent them from becoming rubbery.
