Rifko had selected our oyster partners for the highest quality oysters. When orders are placed on the website, our partners receive notification and accepts the order for the specific oyster and quantity ordered. Our partners ship oysters directly from the hatchery to your front door for the date you provide at checkout. We use FedEx Express overnight shipping with recyclable insulated freezer bags.
There are five simple steps to shuck an oyster. Put the point of the oyster shucker in the hinge of the oyster. Jiggle the shucker left and right and pop the hinge like a key in a lock. Shuck the top shell keeping the point of the oyster shucker against the top side of the oyster shell. Push the oyster out of the hinge and remove any debris. Watch and learn ‘How to Shuck an Oyster’ in our Oyster Academy.
You can eat oysters any month of the year! If you have ever heard about only eating oysters in months that have the letter ‘R’? It’s silly logic and should be ignored. Oysters come from all over the world and eliminating eating them in the Summer is hogwash. Enjoy oysters year round responsibly! Read more about 'The R Rule' on our blog.
We are the #1 resource for an oyster education. You can sign up for an Oyster Shucking Class or have Rifko guest-host at your next event. Be sure to check out our Oyster Academy to learn more.
Fresh oysters should be stored in the fridge. Choose only oysters that have a tightly closed shell, or ones that close when lightly tapped. Oysters with open shells are no longer alive and should be discarded. Look for oyster meat that's moist, with a plump appearance and a mild, fresh smell. Contrary to popular belief, oysters should not have a fishy smell.
