Shucking Recommendation: We recommend shucking FORBIDDEN OYSTERS™ from the side or the bottom (opposite the hinge) so that the shell does not break at the hinge.
We have had many experienced oyster shuckers tell us that they can open FORBIDDEN Oysters™ at the hinge w/o breaking them, but we have found that it is easier and faster to start the shucking process:
1. beside the hinge
2. on the side
3. at the bottom (opposite the hinge)
