Oysters on the Half Shell

This isn’t really much of a recipe, but rather an encouragement to all of you to try oysters if you have not!  Ben and I wandered our local market last night for an hour, just investigating all the really cool things they have to offer.  We decided to get adventurous and try some oysters out at home.  I was a little skeptical, and had visions of being sick all night, but I was very pleasantly surprised.  And you know how everyone says they are an aphrodisiac?  Well, let’s just say…it’s true.

Serves 2 as an appetizer
4 oysters (make sure they are fresh and from a reputable source. The shell should not be open at all)
1 lemon, sliced in wedges
crushed ice

Here is a great video on how to shuck an oyster.

Once your oysters are shucked, place the crushed ice in a bowl of platter, lay the shells in the ice and arrange lemon wedges. Slurp them down and enjoy the wonderful sea flavor!
