  • Shuck the oysters carefully and reserve the oyster liquor (juice) in a small bowl. Place the oysters on a bed of crushed ice on a serving platter.
  • Cut the pomegranate in half and gently remove the seeds, trying to keep them intact. Spoon a small amount of the pomegranate seeds onto each oyster.
