Florida’s Creamy Oyster Stew

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.

  1. I LOVE oysters, but sadly my family does not tolerate them much. My favorite way to prepare them is BBQ’d on the grill until they open up, then add garlic butter and Tabasco. YUM! The oyster stew sounds so good but I’d end up eating it solo, LOL! (p.s. I also love a Bloody Mary Oyster Shooter and this little dinky bar on the Oregon coast. They are only $1.50 each and are SOOO GOOD!)
