Recently we brought you a great post on how to choose good oyster and fish knives - the piece looked at the features needed in a good oyster knife and presented a picture gallery of some beautiful knives.
Once you have a good oyster knife you're half way to being able to prepare quality oysters for your guests - but a knife is only 50 percent. You need to know how to treat your oyster and how to open its shell without damaging the scrumptious oyster.
This simple and quick video from the guys at Great British Chefs show's you a step by step guide on how to open oysters. We also have some very useful videos on how to fillet fish - from sea bass to red mullet and even how to fillet sardines.
