Look for fresh, live oysters that smell clean, like the ocean, with tightly closed shells.
Refrigerate live oysters flat side up and covered with a damp towel. Do not store in an airtight container. Cook as soon as possible.
Serve raw shucked oysters on crushed ice. To shuck, hold the oyster flat side up, insert a knife into the opening near the hinge, and twist to open. Once the hinge gives, slide the knife along the shell to sever the muscle, and pick out any grit or pieces of broken shell.
