I bought a bag of 100 oysters overnighted from Duxbury MA. They were just harvested yesterday.
I've shucked a few, but this is my first time buying and storing this many. I have to store them until tomorrow for my party. I have a few questions for all the experts out there.
1) Storage. The instructions say leave it in the bag in the fridge with a damp towel over the top. My fridge has a wire rack, so should I put a damp towel underneath also? Is it better to lay them out on a baking dish or is the bag okay?
2) Sauces. With oysters this fresh, it's a waste to do anything but eat them raw. Mostly i just like mine with a squeeze of lemon but I plan to have other options for guests. So far my list is mignonette sauce, a sriracha maple syrup hot sauce, lime and thai chile. Any other favorites y'all recommend?
