    Default Oysters sold without shells - need help with a recipe

    We always like cooking oysters in the deep half of their shells, with
    oil and garlic. But this time, we bought oysters in the box without
    shells - any suggestions for a recipe ?

    I was going to suggest that along with battering and deep frying.
    The latter is the only way I ever enjoyed oysters. I haven't eaten
    them in years, too leery about contamination.

    My most spectacular and long lasting case of Montezuma's revenge came
    from deep fried oysters. It was based on a misunderstanding and 50 years
    ago but I have not eaten cooked oysters since.

    Between oyster stew and oyster chowder, I prefer chowder hands down.
    (I've possibly posted my technique for making it here in the past.)

    Clarification: I haven't eaten oysters in any form since we moved from
    the east coast, 27 yrs. ago.

    My inlaws often brought Chesapeake Bay oysters back on ice when they
    drove through MD. I was never crazy about them. When we go to seafood
    restaurants in Denver I cringe when anyone orders raw clams or oysters.
    Our tour group ate lots of seviche in Panama but I never ordered it.

    You can do the same thing in a skillet. Personally, I like butter and
    garlic.

    I made oyster stew the other day. The milk curdled but I covered that up
    by mixing in some flour to thicken it a bit. Does this usually happen?
    Is there some way to prevent this? I used one of those jars of
    refrigerated shucked oysters and maybe I should have rinsed the oysters
    off first. Thanks. BTW, it was delicious!

    I've eaten a lot of ceviche, raw oysters, clams, and of course plenty of
    sushi and sashimi and never once had any issues with it. There is a
    difference between caution i.e. ensuring the food is prepared properly
    under sanitary conditions, and paranoia i.e. completely avoiding foods
    that millions of people eat daily with no issue because of some remote
    risk.

    Snails, but Oysters????.....

    I don't know; I've never made oyster stew. :-\

    Fried oyster po-boys.
    I've seen these on menus in several places, but just haven't dared to try it. What are the norms for what is on the po-boy other than oysters?

    Well hello again James. You and I met on a sushi newsgroup quite some time ago. I remember you because my family lives in your area. I hope you've been doing well.

    I'm still a sushi addict, but have gotten good enough at making my own to save lots of money.

    Make sure the stew is not acidic, and add the (separately warmed) milk
    immediately before serving it.

    Oh *yes*, don't knock it until you've tried it. Butter and lots of
    minced garlic, don't be shy. Simmer them together for a minute or two
    before introducing the oysters (to cook the garlic) and don't overcook
    the oysters. Eat on bruschetta (grilled bread).

    Thnaks for all your suggestions, but now you made me scared. Can it be
    really that bad ? How can one get such a bad poisonning from cooked
    oysters ?

    Toxins. You need to be a little careful about where your oysters
    from from.
