Shucking Oysters in Your Apartment in Lady Lake, FL

Florida has some of the best seafood in the world. From blue crabs and crawfish to catfish and oysters, you’ll be able to find a plethora of delicious seafood near The Quarters Apartment Homes. However, if you get in the mood for some oysters and don’t want to venture to a restaurant for them, you can always shuck some from the comfort of your apartment in Lady Lake, FL.

Shucking an oyster can be a difficult process, but these quick steps can make it much easier for you:

  • First you’ll need oysters, an oyster knife, and thick mesh gloves. These can all be bought at any local grocery store or your favorite fish market.
  • Scrub away any mud and dirt from the shell.
  • Insert the oyster knife into the oyster hinge with the blade facing downward toward the cup of the shell, and twist the knife until you hear the hinge pop.
  • Place the knife upward now, and scrape the shell along the adductor muscle (part of the oyster that clamps shut) from one side to the other, making sure to keep the oyster closed shut.
  • When you have reached the other end of the adductor muscle, flip the oyster open, angle the knife upward again, and scrape it across the muscle once again.
  • Open the oyster, slide the meat out, add your favorite condiments, and enjoy.

Now you can impress family and friends and prepare a delicious snack for them any time. To gather information about the apartment community at The Quarters, please fill out the form on our Contact Us page or give us a call today. We’ll be more than happy to answer any and all questions you have.
