Place an oyster cup side down onto a clean kitchen towel or cutting board.
Insert the point of the oyster knife into the hinge, and wiggle the knife while placing a little pressure downward into the oyster and not towards your hand. If you are successful, the oyster shell will crack open.
Run the knife along the top of the shell to release the oyster into the bottom half of the shell. Be careful not to lose the liquid. Discard the top shell, along with any loose shell fragments.
Carefully run the knife under the oyster flesh to release it from its adductor muscle on the bottom shell.
Best served cold atop a salad or made into lobster rolls, pre-cooked lobsters can be refrigerated for up to 2 days from the day of delivery.
