Let’s start with the basics. The first thing you’ll need to prepare seafood is a cutting board. If you need a cutting board, you’ll also need something to cut with, so make sure you have a selection of knives available. You’ll also need a cast-iron skillet and a fish spatula.

Next up are the more exclusive accessories. The previous supplies may already be in your kitchen, but these next items may require a trip to the store. Seafood crackers and picks are specifically designed to help you get the meat out of hard shell seafood like lobster and crab. If you’re cooking up oysters, you’ll need an oyster knife instead of the paring knife you may already have in your kitchen. An oyster knife won’t get damaged when in use because it has a curve that can slip between the shells of an oyster to hinge it open without destroying the meat inside.

Finally, think of purchasing a shucking glove before you prepare seafood for dinner. A shucking glove is used to help you hold an oyster or any other seafood that requires shucking, tightly in your hands. This way you can better control the shucking process.
