If you live in Florida you have already sampled this wonderful Oyster Stew, if not you need to (if you love oysters, that is)? Everyone who enjoys Oysters will love this easy, flavorful Stew.
You’ll need 8 ounces fresh Oysters with juices (I get mine from local Seafood Market), 1-1/2 cups Milk, 1/2 cup light cream, 1-1/4 teaspoon black pepper, one stalk of celery minced or finely grated, 2 stalks of scallion grated or finely chopped, 1-1/4 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning (for Seafood), one lemon for zest and juice, parsley, for garnish. You may elect to cut (halved) the Oysters or keep them whole. In a mid size pot with a lid add Milk, cream, Oyster juices, Old Bay, black pepper, grated celery and scallions, lemon zest and juice, stir to mix. Put heat on medium high as you see steam rising (do not boil) add Oysters and tightly close lid and cook 10 minutes on medium low heat. Stir and serve in soup bowls garnish with fresh chopped parsley and also with Oyster crackers, or saltines, or seasoned croutons. I do not think you’ll be disappointed.
It is super delicious and hearty! A Florida Staple! Enjoy!
In closing I wish you Good Health.
