Talal and I always enjoy doing or trying new things. Crawfish was one of those new ideas a while ago. It's till fun for us to get the group together and crank out 30 pounds of crash at a minimum. Now that we have the crawfish pot, it's been easier to plan it.
This time, we wanted to give shucking oysters a shot. At Roy's Super Bowl Cajun extravaganza, we learned about the intricacies of shucking and making grilled oysters. When i say intricacies, I'm being sarcastic. it's really simple once you get the motion.
I was in charge of the toppings - melted butter, garlic, parmesan. Done.
Talal bought the equipment. Glove, shucking knife from Academy, oysters. Done.
Next, we just watched a few YouTube videos and we shucked. Some were much harder than others. A trick we learned is that they relax as they warm up. So, we just came back to the hard ones. they tasted YUMMY! So yummy, that they were gone in a jiffy.
