How to shuck an oyster

There’s nothing like eating a freshly shucked oyster, so the best way of making sure you can have one any time is to learn to do it yourself! Opening oysters smoothly will make you the star of your parties during the holiday season, the best asset at a summer barbecue, the organiser of the best evenings in and, crucially, will mean that you can eat an oyster whenever you like. Eat them raw and delicious out of the shell, or have a look at our recipes to find the perfect way of preparing them. Either way, the first step is to learn how to shuck, so here is our founder Matijn giving you a lesson on how to open your very own oysters.


We love talking about oysters, so if you’d like more detailed instructions about the shucking process, get in touch and we’d be delighted to answer any questions you have.
