  • Once the shallots have been finely diced, add enough balsamic vinegar to slightly cover the shallots.
  • Your fishmonger can open your oysters for you but if you prefer, you can do them yourself, just be careful.
  • Using an oyster knife of a blunt knife, slide the blade between the two halves on the hinge side and pry open. You want the more bulbous half in the palm of your hand to keep.
  • Once open, gently slide the knife around the oyster to detach it from the shell.,
  • You don’t need the top half and the bottom part should have the meat and juice from the oyster.
  • Leave the oyster in the shell. Eating it from the shell is part of the experience.
  • Place a teaspoon of the shallot and vinegar mix into the shell with the oyster.
  • To eat it properly, you simply pour the oyster into your mouth, chew it once to release the amazing flavours and swallow.
  • I slice a lemon up for those who enjoy an extra kick.
