Author Alan Mac ( ago)
Mostly right. Anyone who uses 'cocktail sauce' is an utter tramp. A dab of lemon or tabasco is just right.

"I'm going to put a little bit of lemon" *Juiced the entire half lemon onto the oyster*

Author Thotbreak Kid ( ago)
I eat whatever I eat however I eat. As long as the food gets into my mouth, I'm good.

Author Kaiser Frost ( ago)
They are good with lemon and sauce too, otherwise lemon and sauce wouldn't come with them. :) Purists think we should never season any kind of food because it "detracts from the flavor". Oysters have a strong enough flavor that you can add pther flavors and that just makes them better.

Author vorkev1 ( ago)
their is no wrong way only the right witch is the way you do it each person is different and to eatch their oww.

What's the deal with that music?... And that lady I guess she knew she was going to be on camera that day and decided to look like a clown?... I would eat her oyster though

Author Mak ( ago)
Tbh only pussies or Yankees put Tabasco or cocktail sauce on oysters. You either eat them without anything or put lemon/vinegar-with-shallots on them.

Author Randy Guttery ( ago)
Great video, but didn't really explain how I have been doing wrong. Enjoyed though.

there is no wrong way to eat oysters.. eat them bitches however tf u wanna eat them.. end of story..

Author Woody German ( ago)
Take a deep breath, use index finger to pinch one side of nose, then forcefully expel contents into open palm. Carefully pinch other nostril with same index finger and repeat.
The oyster(s) should be all collected in one palm only......... Enjoy!!!!

Author Lili Do ( ago)

Author Mathew Peter ( ago)
The best way is a squeeze of lemon 🍋 and a crunch of zanzibare fresh pepper.. Nothing else. All those ridiculous sauces mask the delicate flavour of the oyster.

Author Lucas Patrick ( ago)
Good educational series. Really you should experience it if you are eating it... Unless it's on a bet or something. We should slow down, experience, and taste our food. I'm a reformed U.S. offender. Lol

Considering that 95% of oysters in restaurants are farmed, I'm not sure that the harvest area water flavor is that critical.

Author David Buschhorn ( ago)
I eat them as I go :-) When you're shucking the oysters, it's like making chocolate chip cookies.

You can't not just eat them!

Why do you need to flip the oyster? You can just look that there's no fucking oyster on the shell.
