The Huitres au Naturel (oysters in its own juices) recipe very easy to prepare and so good!


Try to buy the oysters the day they are required as, like most seafood, they do not keep exceptionally well, although unopened they can be stored for 2-3 days. Get the fishmonger to shuck them to order or do it yourself. Do not wash the oysters as the juices will be lost and these juices will add to the flavor. Use the opened oysters within 24 hours.
