A Dozen Oysters With A Pint Of Stout


Although most people would probably not find a pint of stout to be overly romantic, I am yet to find an Irish man who given the choice would not prefer the stout to almost anything else.


  • First, wash your oysters and open with a shucking knife of a stubby short-tipped knife, (you can ask your fishmonger to do this for you if you are going to eat them within a couple of hours)
  • Serve the open oysters on a bed of seaweed or rock salt arranged in a circle with a couple of lemon wedges.
  • Along side have your brown bread and of course your pint of stout.
  • Enjoy.
