How to Open / Shuck an Oyster without a shucking knife.
This is how to shuck an oyster without an oyster knife.
If you don't own a oyster shucking knife, like me, but you have oysters then grab a flat-head screwdriver and a towel to wrap up the oyster in it and go to town. This video will show you exactly how to do it and it's not difficult at all. I didn't even need a glove just use some basic common sense rules to be safe.
Insert the screwdriver at the "hinge" crack and wiggle the screwdriver. From seeing some other videos I thought it would be hard but it was simple. The only challenge is keeping the oyster clean from debree sometimes hidden in the cracks of the seal. Use a towel to help keep it clean.
