Method

Scrub oysters in cold water. Place an oyster, cupped-side down with the pointed end facing you, on a slightly damp kitchen towel. Hold it in place with another kitchen towel. With, if desired, glove protected hands; insert the point of an oyster knife into the hinge of the shells. Work the knife in a of an inch, and then twist it to pry the oyster open. Slide the knife across the top shell and remove. Slide the knife under the oyster to detach it from the bottom shell. Remove any shell fragments. Repeat with remaining oysters. Spoon vinaigrette over the oysters and serve.

Serving Suggestions

The salty, sharp flavours of these oysters awaken the palate -providing a perfect way to start a West Coast dinner. To serve as a main course, add a crisp green salad alongside.
