PNW Oysters... mmm mmm

This past weekend I found out that oysters from the Pacific Northwest are 3x the size of the ones from the East Coast and are absolutely amazing but really difficult to get open.  I looked up on Google how to open the damn things and tried using a knife to no avail.. they are like cement!  I decided to then use a screwdriver and hammer instead and was able to get a few of them open for raw oyster shooters!  (an oyster shooter is a large oyster in a shot glass with cocktail sauce).  I decided that opening them raw was going to be too difficult so I decided to steam them instead which worked out fabulously!  I think I found the equivalent to lobster on the West Coast!
