This is basically oysters Rockefeller. We cook it with very finely chopped bell pepper, onion and celery with a little Anisette liquor. Put the raw oysters in the sauteed Onion/pepper/celery, top with spinach and Parmesan and bake 15 minutes.
In Mobile we would actually put the raw oysters back in shells, puree all the sauteed vegetables and spinach together with the Anisette, and cover the oysters completely. Sprinkle the parmesan on top. The pureed veggies hold the moisture in the oysters so things don't dry out.

I spent 4 days in Corpus last fall, they actually had limits on oysters. We each had a couple dozen the first day, then all the oyster bars ran out and we were forced to eat shrimp and crab the other 3 days.

21st Amendment makes a good oyster stout, though they only use the shells too.

Stop it! I can't stand it! I love oysters & clams. We used to be able to go down to the beach during spring thaw when the waves were rough on Lake Erie & pick a couple of 5 gallon buckets of big clams. We used to have the family over for fresh clam chowder & home made french bread.
I also love either one dredged in corn meal & fried. Or in the bbq pit with ash on the half shell with amish smoked cheddar.

Hi Yooper,

Prolly very late to the game here, but we have a family tradition with oyster soup over the holiday. I can't point to the origins, but my family farms in North Kansas, three generations. I made it over Christmas from fresh shucked oysters and a tin of canned, and a bit of beer.

Essentially it is a simple soup made with oysters, tasty and briney.

4 cups of whole milk, sub in some whole cream if you want it richer.
1 large can of canned oysters (look for those packed in salt water, not the oily smoked oysters), make sure to add the liquor.
Any fresh oysters I can find that are inexpensive (we can buy a 2 pound fresh tub here at HEB)
1 small vidalia onion, finely chopped
3-4 cloves of garlic (too taste)
1/2 to 1 stick of butter (I sub some olive oil to reduce the butter, silly after looking at all that milk)

Saute the onion on medium heat to soften in butter and olive oil, then add the fresh and canned oysters (hold back the liquor) for a few minutes, along with the garlic. Looking for the garlic to just start to darken a bit.

Then I add a half bottle of a light beer (usually a pilsner), the milk and the oyster liquor, and bring to a simmer. You can also add potatoes, but I find they need to be precooked or the oysters get overdone and fall apart.

We typically serve the soup over day old cornbread or use saltines. And hot sauced to taste, if you like it. My grandfather used to dose it with a bit of horseradish.

If you think cooking them in a soup is heresy, I would agree, but in the middle of rural Kansas, tinned is the best you can get!

yoop, I used to live on the panhandle of florida, a nice oyster stew is amazing. just throw everything, juice and all, into a pot of potstoes and onions and it will end up devine. harpoon did a 100 barrel batch last year using island creek oysters (oyster stout) which was absolutely devine

we finally got an oyster bar in town. It's called the Bubbly mermaid and so far the oysters and drinks have been very, very good but at $3 an oyster (more for any prepared) and $7 - $12 a drink it gets expensive fast. I'd still rather go get my own.
