15-Minute Oyster Stew
Source of Recipe
From "Scratch" by Maria Rodale
"I have loved oyster stew since I was a small girl. For some reason, I remember it as a Christmas food. Fresh oysters are essential to give the stew its ocean-y goodness. The other essential ingredient is oyster crackers. The crackers give the soup its thickness and satisfying fullness."
List of Ingredients
◦ 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
◦ 1 pound shucked raw oysters, with their liquid
◦ 4 cups whole milk
◦ Salt and freshly ground black pepper
◦ Oyster crackers
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat until slightly browned.
Add the oysters and cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until their sides are ruffled.
Add the milk and salt and pepper to taste and cook for 2 to 4 minutes, until warmed through. Be careful to never let the soup boil. Serve with the oyster crackers.
