Potato and Fennel Crusted Oysters with Mustard Dressing
How to schuck oysters:  Keep oysters cold.  Grip the oyster, flat side up, and force the tip of an oyster knife, between the shells just next to the hinge. Pry, twisting the knife, while at the same time trying to push the blade into the oyster, breaking the hinge. Run the blade along the inside of the upper shell to free the oyster, removing the top shell.
