Cooking Basics

Oysters - cleaning

Place the oysters into a strainer, then place into 3% salt water and lightly stir with your hands. Clean by shaking the bowl back and forth. By doing so not only sand, but any sliminess and strong odor will also be removed. After cleaning, use paper towels to thoroughly remove any remaining moisture.

Garlic - thinly sliced

Cut the garlic clove with the skin removed vertically in two. Then use the heel of the knife to remove the core and thinly slice.
