A QUICK OYSTER OPENER
Place oysters on baking sheet into an
oven which has been preheated to 375 F.
Keep in oven for 3 to 4 minutes.
Remove and plunge immediately into a
metal bowl filled with water and ice.
The oysters will open immediately.
They should be plump, with a creamy,
sandy color. Discard any oysters that
are not alive, notably those that are
dark or have a bluish or brownish color.
The oysters, chilled with the ice, will be
ready for eating. Simply sprinkle with
lemon juice and freshly-ground pepper and serve.
