ground white pepper
fresh shucked oysters
chopped fresh parsley
sherry wine, or to taste
By adding the oysters with their juice to the butter mixture in the pan you do not have to deal with a double boiler. Simply simmer the oysters until the edges just begin to curl; add the milk and heat through while keeping a close watch as not to boil. I tried a tiny bowl with a touch of sherry and didn't care for it so left it out of the remainder. I did add about 1/2 teaspoon of celery seed along with the other seasonings.
My father in law has always made Oyster stew for my family on special occasions. This valentines I wanted to make something special and my 10 year old requested Papa's Oyster stew. This was the recipe I chose and it was a good one. Papa does not add the pepper but we did and enjoyed it.
Excellent recipe for a quick stew that tastes like it took hours to make!
Simple easy and fast. I didn't have sherry wine. I took three oysters and put them in blender, blended them very fine and added them to the milk for a strong oyster taste. I didn't like to use two pots for this soup. My husband didn't mind washing an extra pot since he loved the soup.
I'm not an oyster fan but my husband is. Not sure why this turned kinda gray as you can see by my picture. He said the flavor was right on but it looked so unappetizing. Thanks for the recipe though, it sure was easy and fast.
I made a double batch of this for me and a friend (we ate the soup as the main course). It was great! My mom makes oyster stew as well, but its a bit different than this.... I made THIS recipe and it was delicious! Thanks.
I revised using Heavy Cream and I have to admit the Sherry Sparked this into the Memories of all on Christmas Eve Night! Sister hated Oysters and she really loved this, and you know that was all I needed for thanks. Going to repeat this for Christmas 2011 too!
