Recipe - oysters in craft beer mignonette



By Chef Avaughn Wells 



STORING OYSTERS
Live (without shells removed) shellfish should never be stored in airtight containers or bags since the animals can die from lack of oxygen. They can be loosely covered with clean, damp paper towels or cloths to prevent them from drying out in the refrigerator. Store live shellfish above raw meat, or poultry, so juices don't drip on them. Do not store live shellfish directly on ice, since the melting fresh water may kill them. Store at temperatures between 35 and 40 degrees F.


SHUCKING OYSTERS
First rinse each oyster under cold running tap water.
Wrap a tea towel over one hand and use it to hold the oyster firmly.
Using an oyster shucking knife in the other hand, place the tip of the shucking knife at the base of the hinge, twist the knife using pressure, then without the pressure, lever the knife upwards, or twist it to pry the hinge open.
Slide the knife under the top shell to release the oyster and remove the shell.
You can now add a dressing of your choice to the oyster.
