At the Nontronnaise cutlery, we like to choose oysters and cut them up without cutting ourselves. Follow our advice!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 … What are these numbers?
The numbers you see on the stalls are simply the size of the oysters, their size. The smaller the number, the bigger the oysters. Queens of the most popular seafood platters usually have the 2 sizes (between 86g and 110g, the most consumed), 3 (from 66g to 85g) and 4 (between 46g and 65g). The largest oysters (0 and 1) are perfect for hot cooking.
Open oysters in 3 steps
1- With one hand take a folded tea towel and place the oyster in the hollow; this will open it without hurting you;
2- With the other hand, slide the tip of the blade of your Nontron knife into the tip of the oyster and force the opening.
3- Slip the tip of the knife along the shell, cut the muscle holding the oyster and eliminate the scales that have fallen into it. We advise you to empty the water; if the oyster remakes its water, it is a sign of freshness.
