Live Oysters Spéciale de Claire

u  The Fine de Claire de Pontac oysters come from the French Region of Marennes.

They are specially selected by the producer before finishing for their regular shape, roundness, and depth. A deeper concavity in the shell shows a larger quantity of flesh. On tasting, the special de claire is distinct from the fine de claire by a firmer texture to the flesh, the volume in the mouth, and a remarkable balance of sweetness and salt. These oysters are finished for several weeks in shallow clay ponds where they will acquire a quality that is clearly superior to that of the open sea.

How to serve an oyster?

Start by sorting through your oysters, they all should be tightly closed. Those that are open and will not close when tapped on a hard surface need to be discarded. Open them following the following video tutorials. Remove the first water juice just after the opening which is only composed of seawater. The oyster will recreate a second one much more flavourful.  Serve the oysters immediately. Putting them on an ice bed would hide some flavors.
