Oysters with caviar
How to shuck an oyster:
Oysters should be opened immediately before serving. Discard any that are not tightly closed.
To open an oyster, first fold a tea towel into your left hand. Place the oyster into the towel with the hinge facing towards you. With an oyster knife or any short bladed knife with a strong blade, insert the tip of the blade in to the hinge. By moving the blade side to side the hinge will break open.
HOLD THE KNIFE BY THE TIP OF THE BLADE AND NOT BY ITS HANDLE, this will ensure that you will not cut yourself should the knife slip. Remove the oyster from its shell, wash in salted water and return it to the shell.
Simply top each oyster with a teaspoon of caviar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
