Valentine's Day Oysters

Thinking of shucking some oysters in the name of romance and Valentine's Day? Great idea, at least if you want to romance me (although my husband just might object).

The slurpy texture and mineral taste and non-filling effect of oysters is divine. And in areas where oysters are local, they tend to be in-season and tasty this time of year. Check out How to Shuck Oysters - I walk you through the process step-by-step. Have no idea how to serve them once they are shucked? Well, I have a few ideas for you with these Simple and Delicious Oyster Sauces.

Not sure where to get good oysters? Check with a local fishmonger who can tell you where their oysters were harvested.
