With the Super Bowl approaching, it is the perfect time to pull out those favorite food recipes. One of our favorites? . . . . . Oysters!!!
Oysters 3 ways
OYSTERS WITH CRANBERRY-HORSERADISH RELISH
- 2 cups fresh or thawed cranberries
- 2 small yellow onions
- 2 lbs. fresh horseradish, peeled and finely grated
- 2 cups honey
- 2 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 4 carrots, grated
- 3 large apples, peeled and grated fine (Granny Smith)
- 3 ” piece ginger, peeled and grated fine
50 oysters in their shells, scrubbed clean (For 25 oysters – divide relish ingredients in half)
Pre-Heat oven to 450° – prepare relish – Purée cranberries and onion in a food processor until blended smoothly. Place in a bowl; add horseradish, honey, and stir together. Add remaining ingredients (no oysters). Combine well and marinate 30 minutes.
Scrub oyster shells clean. Place clean, oysters (rounded side down) in roasting pan, stack up to 2 layers, and pour 2 cups water into bottom of pan. Roast 20–25 minutes until shells pop open.
Transfer pan to rack, and cover with towel. Oysters will steam a bit under cover. Once cool enough to touch, use an oyster knife to remove the upper portion of shell. Serve on the half shell with cranberry-horseradish relish on the side.
Southern Fried Oysters
Shuck oysters and add to a bowl with most of the liquid. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil, or coconut oil in a cast iron skillet (others will do, but “Southern Fried” is more official with cast iron) Place flour as needed into a shallow bowl. Dredge individual oysters through, adding a light coat of flour to each and add to hot skillet. Brown quickly, flip and remove from heat as soon as oyster is golden brown on each side. Serve with cranberry horseradish relish, with fresh horseradish, or cocktail sauce.
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups milk
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 pints oysters with liquid
- salt and pepper to taste
- dash of cayenne pepper to taste
Chopped green onion to garnish and/or oyster crackers Cook oyster liquid, milk, cream, and half of the butter and bring just under soft boil. Add oysters and bring back to boiling point. Remove from heat. Ladle into bowls. Top with bits of remaining butter, cayenne, chopped green onions to taste. Enjoy with oyster crackers or without.
