How to make Raw Oysters with Dressing


Open raw oysters.  This will take some practice.  If you use a oyster knife it'll be easier.  If you haven't opened a raw oyster before use this simple method at first to make oyster shell easier to open.

Easy oyster opening tip:  If you've never opened a raw oyster you should note, the flat side is the top.  Wash the oysters first in cold water. Place the oyster, flat/top side up, in the microwave for 30sec-1min.  Once slightly heated the oyster shell will begin to open and you can use a knife to open it all the way.  Be careful using a regular knife, make sure you use gloves or wrap the oyster in a cloth so you don't hurt yourself.
Once the oysters shells are open, place in a plate with crushed ice. 

Chop cilantro and green chile (you can use any green pepper but make sure it's not a hot pepper i.e. jalapeno).  mix together in a small plate and drizzle with fresh lime and hot sauce.

Spoon on top of the oyster.  Add salt to taste.

Serve immediately.

Serves 2.
