Spicy Oyster Stew



Every now n then I get a hankering for a good oyster stew. Here is my recipe.  I add a good deal of onions and some celery.
...and of course it has a "zing"

Ingredients
2 8oz. jars of raw oysters
2 med. onions chopped small
3 stalks of celery sliced about 1/8"
1 T. black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 stick (8 T.) real butter
4 cups whole milk

First, saute your chopped onions and celery in 4 T. of butter. While that is cooking drain the liquid off your oysters, and save it.


When the veggies are soft (but not mushy) add your oysters to the pan. My oysters were extremely large when I spilled them out to drain them, so you probably will have to cut them up a tad.
Continue to cook until the oysters curl and are cooked thoroughly, but do not overcook or they can become rather "rubbery" lol
Pour your 4 c. milk into a pot. Add the seasonings, the juice from your oysters, and the other 8T. of butter, and heat til JUST boiling.
(note: if you don't relish the spicy taste, you can either use LESS cayenne pepper, or a milder ground red pepper, or simply no pepper at all!!)
Then add your oyster/veggie mixture, stir, and simmer!
That's it!
Serve garnished with a sprig of fresh kale and oyster crackers.
(another note: This recipe can easily be transformed into an "oyster chowder" with the addition of diced potatoes and perhaps some corn!!)
ENJOY ENJOY!!!!
