if you like a proper bloody mary and enjoy devouring oysters, this little number is for you! this summer i worked in an exceptional fish restaurant and was shucking an average of 10 kilos of oysters from brittany each night. clients who had never tried an oyster shot before would usually scrunch up their noses and cringe when i would describe how an oyster shot was prepared and enjoyed. however, once they tried one, they inevitably kept coming back for more. so at the end of my oyster shucking experience i concluded that oyster shots can be one of the most addictive drugs on the market!


one chilled shot glass

a splash of fresh tomato juice
a few drops of fresh squeezed lemon juice
a pinch of salt
a dash of tabasco

one freshly shucked oyster

a top up of ice cold vodka
a grind of the pepper mill

toss the shot back and simultaneously chew the oyster as you swallow and enjoy the layers of tomato, lemon and vodka as they slide over your palate

a napkin to wipe up the drizzle dripping down your lower cheek

I have never been friends with vodka. LOL! But, for the oyster shot I think I'll do it :)

Glad you are back online!

Had my first ever oyster shots yesterday. Checked out the web to see how to make them and found your blog.
Great info.
