I love shellfish so it goes without saying that I love oysters.
Oysters are plentiful and affordable in the United States. We’re blessed with fresh, live, big, fat, and succulent oysters all year long from the east coast and west coast. I would be sharing more oyster recipes if I don’t have to shuck them. To me, shucking oyster is the most difficult kitchen chore, a skill that I haven’t quite mastered. The last time I bought oysters, I almost used a hammer.
I got myself four big oysters for 99 cents each. I would have gotten more, but I wanted to be sure that I could open them. I asked the store attendant and he kindly taught me the trick and it worked, except a minor cut on my finger. Anyway, as you can tell from my pictures above, my efforts paid off handsomely with these yummy-o-licious baked oysters.
This baked oysters recipe calls for finely chopped garlic, parsley leaves, salt, paprika, and butter. I wish you can try these baked oysters. The recipe is so good I only wished I got more oysters at the market. I will be sharing more oyster recipes for sure, now that I can shuck them!
