How to serve and an oyster?

Start by sorting through your oysters, they all should be tightly closed. The ones that are open and will not close when tapped on a hard surface need to be discarded. Open them following the instruction from the video tutorial below. Remove first the excess fluids after opening which are mostly sea water. The oyster will recreate a second one much more flavourful. Serve the oysters immediately. Putting them on ice bed would mask some of the flavours.
