How to expertly shuck an oyster in under 10 seconds

You can achieve quite a lot in 2 minutes, 38 seconds.

Boil an egg. Bag yourself a date on Tinder. Watch the highlights of an England football match. Twice.

For Fredrik Lindfors, 2015 Winner of the Tabasco British Oyster Opening Championships, in the same amount of time this man can shuck a staggering 30 oysters, roughly working out to five seconds for every clam. Heroic stuff.

Now, we don’t expect you to match this shuck-rate (heck, you probably didn’t even know what shucking *was* until a second ago), but nonetheless we asked Lindfors to give us speedy tips in the hope you can crack one open in under 10 seconds, making sure presentation is also key.

So hit the gallery below for a quick six step guide to oyster slicing supremacy.

So long, shuckers!

The 23rd Annual TABASCO Oyster Opening Championship took place at Wright Brothers in Spitalfields, where 12 shuckers from across the UK battled it out to be crowned the winner.
