This oyster stew recipe uses simple ingredients, allowing the fresh, pure sea flavor of the oysters to shine through. A heartwarming stew, it's perfect for a night when a chill is hanging in the air and one wants to warm up at the kitchen table. The preparation is easy and fast, making this a wonderful dish for special occasion dinners when oysters are typically served, but a casual presentation is desired.
4 dozen oysters, shucked, drained and liquid reserved
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 cup chopped finely chopped parsley
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Melt 8 tablespoons of butter in a large pan set over medium heat. Stir the flour into the melted butter, and cook it, whisking constantly, for 3 minutes. Add the onions and celery to the mixture, and cook it, stirring occasionally for 4 minutes.
Stir the milk, reserved oyster liquid, and chopped garlic into the sautéed vegetables. Season it with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring the broth to a gentle simmer, and allow it to cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add the oysters and parsley, and continue simmering the stew for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until the oysters curl up at the edges.
Stir the remaining 4 tablespoons butter into the liquid, and serve the stew hot.
