Oyster Slider Recipe

Nothing inspires as much hope in the future of humanity as a platter piled high with simple, perfect sliders. Such is the case with this oyster slider recipe from Marc Murphy of surfer-themed gastropub Ditch Plains fame. Fear not the oyster, for it is easily shucked (check out our handy gif), dredging is a lot easier and less messy than breading and slider construction might as well be arts and crafts. If that doesn't convince you, the photo should.
