Oysters to start the evening...

Oysters.  Don't be afraid to prepare these - just be careful.  At just 120 calories for 3, they were the perfect (decadent) starter.  At just 60p each, we think it's a steal.
All we could taste was the sea.  So fresh and zingy.  We tried some with lemon and some with tabasco - both preferring the lemon, which complimented the oyster perfectly.  This is pure protein on a plate, and so low in calories.  It's a texture/visual thing - you either like it or you don't.  The freshness hit the spot and I can't wait to eat our main dish now.

My partner opened the oysters using a smallish knife (there are videos on the internet showing you how to do it).  There is a hinge on the back of the oyster at the small end of the shell.  He broke the hinge using the knife with a bit of force while holding the oyster in a cloth.  I closed my eyes.  Once the hinge is broken, he slid the knife horizontally to open the shell, then cut the oyster free.  He's getting better at this, so it does take practise.  They make it look so easy in the oyster bars!!!!
