How many ways can you prepare an oyster, you say? Well the main ways to serve oyster is by the half shell either raw, baked, broiled, charbroiled, chargrilled, Rockefeller, Bienville and Remoulade (basically just a baked oyster with Remoulade sauce). Oysters are also served unshucked, but those usually come with a knife and a warning not to hurt yourself when prying open the shell.
