TIP OF THE DAY: Super Shellfish

Today is National Oyster Day, so feast on a few. Oysters are chock full of protein and are low in calories. Oysters on the half shell make a great first course with Champagne or Chablis. Buy the largest, freshest oysters you can find and shuck them right before serving. Serve them with fresh lemon wedges. Very fresh oysters need nothing more (in fact, we don’t even use the lemon wedges!), but you can make mignonette sauce (there’s a recipe in our Oyster Glossary) or cocktail sauce by mixing ketchup with prepared (bottled) grated horseradish like Gold’s (find it in the grocer’s refrigerator case).
