An oyster is meant to be savored. Rather than swallowing whole, I recommend biting into the oyster so the full flavor profile can be experienced. Also, when consuming an oyster in the shell, remember the 'oyster liquor' is there to be enjoyed. The oyster shell contains this liquor, which is full of a briny flavor, so there is no need to remove before consuming. It will complement the flavors of the oyster itself, not overpower it.
If you plan on shucking at home, take all the necessary precautions! Online video tutorials can be extremely helpful for beginners. A shucking knife and gloves are recommended, or you can utilize a thick kitchen towel to shield your wrist. I would also suggest becoming familiar with the visual anatomy of an oyster. There are two contact points to keep a shell closed. Separating those two key contact points is essential. Remember that oysters should be refrigerated. Don’t store on ice. In fact, oysters can be safely refrigerated close to a week before they need to be consumed.
