IMG_9030

1 dozen oysters (again, we bought full oysters and shucked them ourselves but you can buy them already on the half shell)

1/2 lemon

saltine crackers

cocktail sauce (we like spicy sauce!):

1 cup ketchup

2 tbsp hot sauce

2 tbsp horseradish

juice from 1/2 of lemon

salt and pepper to taste

shuck oysters and place on plate.  in a bowl, mix together all ingredients for cocktail sauce.  so easy and refreshing!  i take my saltine cracker, add a dash of hot sauce on it, then place the oyster and top it off with cocktail sauce!

  1. this makes me jealous. In Florida this week for work and no restaurants have oysters. Apparently the weather has created a shortage.

  2. Oysters are my favorite!!
