Oysters need very little treatment to let their wonderful flavour come through. This stew only takes a few minutes and is sure to please.
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. - 13 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
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. - 12 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
