Default Oysters!

My Texas friends just left, and they gifted us with several packages of frozen shucked oysters!

I have enough for several meals, but she told me her favorite way is a simple recipe.

She told me to thaw and drain the oysters, and then use a ton of butter and garlic in a cast iron pan. Add the oysters and cook slightly. Add some chopped spinach and cook the rest of the way. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve with crusty bread.

I'm making that tonight! I'll take a few pictures and let you know how it turns out.

I like breaded and fried oysters, too, so that will probably be next up.

I cannot think of any recipe or method of preparing oysters that I dont love. I need to meet and befriend your Texas friends.

Well, c'mon down to the Texas Gulf coast in January, February, or March, and I'll introduce you!

The bought a place in Wisconsin about 2.5 hours a way from us here, so this was the first time we've seen them at our house.

In three months, we will be right down the canal and street from them. I'm sure there will be lots more oysters then!

I love oysters as any respectable gulf coast resident should. Of course my favorite way of eating them is on the half shell with a little tobasco and horseradish. That recipe sounds pretty good Yooper. They're good fried as long as they're not over cooked and dry in the middle.
Enjoy!

Oh, I love them raw and that is my favorite as well. I heard I'm getting a new oyster knife and kevlar glove for Christmas (I heard the guys talking last night), and I love grilling them on the half shell as well with some hot sauce and butter and garlic!

They must have shucked a whole sack, froze them and brought them to me. There are a LOT of oysters! These oysters are from the Rockport area, where they live.

Pan fried with simple corn meal and a little cajun seasoning, dipped in 1/2tobasco 1/2 fresh lemon juice.

Or....

Thrown in for the last minute (thawed) of a nice dark gumbo.

It's great to have friends like that.
The best fried oysters I've had we're from a place in Corpus Christi.(Which isn't too far from Rockport) These had to be the biggest oysters I've ever seen. One oyster alone took 3 bites to finish. They were fried to perfection, still plump and juicy under the light breading. Now I'm hungry for oysters!

We've thrown them strait from the water onto a grill with lots of moist applewood and eaten them as they opened.

Yooper, when you thaw them don't throw the liquid away, I make a simple oyster stew using the liquid, some heavy cream, salt, pepper, onions, a little garlic, parsley and lots of real butter.
