For Your Retail Display

Retail If your customers aren’t sure about shucking oysters at home, remind them they can always put rinsed oysters on a hot grill. They heat will cause the oysters to pop open! Just use a knife to carefully finish prying the shell away and top with a dab of butter and some chopped herbs.
