PRESENT YOUR OYSTERS ON A BED OF SALT

Oyster on a bed of Guérande salt Le Guérandais

So that your fresh oysters retain all their flavour, the ideal temperature to taste them is between 13 and 15 ° C. Below 6 degrees the cold prevents any distinction of the flavour.
 

Contrary to what is done in many seafood restaurants, it is not advisable to serve the oysters on ice but rather to serve the oysters on a thick bed of hot coarse Le Guerande Sea Salt. iThis will work wonders to preserve all the flavours of this prised shell fish.
 

Consider placing a fairly thick bed of coarse Le Guerande salt between the oysters and the ice. This layer of salt will help temper how the cold from the ice works - and as a result your dish will be even more original.
