    Proper way to eat what now? To eat anything you open your mouth, insert, chew and swallow. Tf does it matter how any one person enjoys their food? I'd smack anyone in their mouth if they were to tell me " how to eat anything," "correctly"

    I’m sure he’s right, he’s the expert. But I’ve just had too many experiences of grit in my mouth to do the straight from the shell thing. So I’m gonna use the cocktail fork to eat it and you’re going to have to sue me ....

    The proper way is to put the oysters upside down, so the people know you are done with it.
    Otherwise they will see the shell empty but not know if you ate the oyster or it ran away.

  • Stormagaming

    Just have the oyster with a little bit of lemon and a bit of pepper and then just scoop it up the juice of the oyster adds so much more flavor and the salt taste you get from scooping it with the shell makes it perfect.

  • Charlie Wolff

    The right amount of cocktail sauce is none. Get the flavor of the oyster first. Want a finish? Dip your fork in cocktail sauce after eating the oyster and swab your tongue. However, a couple of drops (not too many) of lemon or lime juice to excite your taste buds won't hurt, but I do mean a few, as in two or three, don't drown!

    The best way I have tried is with a little buttermilk. An old guy on Irish market selling oysters showed that and it proved to be way better than hot sauce or lemon. It doesn't kill the taste like the other condiments, just takes a little edge off the saltiness while fully preserving the flavor. Great!

    You put lemon on the Oyster to see if it's still alive. If it moves those small black things on its side it is and you won't get food poisoning.

    Why would anybody dictate the amount of condiment you want on your food? If you want to drown your oyster is sauce then do so. its your food, enjoy it the way you want it.
