Oysters on the half shell, oyster power!!!

One of my favorite foods is fresh oysters!! They are really high in vitamins and protein, and virtually have no fat or calories. On the rare occasions I do buy them whole, I wish I had more patience and skills to shuck them.

My friend Stephanie has just begun exploring food and cooking, and I learned there are many things she’s never tried before, including oysters. We bought a half dozen and had my husband do the shucking (last time I ended up in urgent care with stitches) and wished we could enjoy them daily! My favorite way to eat them is with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and hot sauce; out of my 30+ varieties, I opted for the Tapatio. Absolutely refreshing and healthy and delicious!
