In this how-to video, you will learn how to shuck an oyster. You will need an oyster and an oyster knife. The oyster is tightly shut, so you want to open it up at the hinge. Get your knife in the hinge. Make sure you are wearing a glove in order to do this safely. Once the knife is in, turn the knife so that it slowly pries open. Keep working around until it opens. Now, loosen the meat from the bottom with the knife. Do not spill any of the juices while doing this. Horse radish and ketchup go well with the meat, as well as a squeeze of lemon juice.
