Raw Oysters with Freshly Grated Horseradish

I have enjoyed raw oysters my entire life; however, I always ate them with cocktail sauce and a saltine cracker.  I don’t really eat them that often now that I can’t have my cracker…until today.  I will resume my oyster obsession with this very fresh version…and take my advice, the raw oysters with freshly grated horseradish makes all the difference (try it on a steak also ~ divine!!).

Raw Oysters with Freshly Grated Horseradish

Using an oyster knife, shuck your oysters, making sure you cut the muscle that attaches to each shell.  (Watch video here).

Simply grate some fresh horseradish over your oysters.  Put a squirt of your favorite hot sauce (mine is Sriracha).  Squeeze some fresh lemon over each oyster.  Garnish with chopped parsley.  That’s it ~ it’s that simple.

  1. I lived in downtown Boston in the late 80s; used to take my daughter to the Haymarket street market(next to the Union Oyster House); we got 1/2 dozen oysters and a 6 oz. can of Bud for breakfast. They called it the breakfast of champions. Live in DC now, but we still go out and occasionally have the breakfast of champions. Chesapeake oysters – the best!
