Categories     Appetizers and Snacks     Seafood

Time 1h

Yield 6

Number Of Ingredients 11

2 slices bacon
24 unopened, fresh, live medium oysters
1 ½ cups cooked spinach
⅓ cup bread crumbs
¼ cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
½ teaspoon salt
1 dash hot pepper sauce
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon anise flavored liqueur
4 cups kosher salt


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (220 degrees C). Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  • Clean oysters and place in a large stockpot. Pour in enough water to cover oysters; bring the water and oysters to a boil. Remove from heat and drain and cool oysters. When cooled break the top shell off of each oyster.
  • Using a food processor, chop the bacon, spinach, bread crumbs, green onions, and parsley. Add the salt, hot sauce, olive oil and anise-flavored liqueur and process until finely chopped but not pureed, about 10 seconds.
  • Arrange the oysters in their half shells on a pan with kosher salt. Spoon some of the spinach mixture on each oyster. Bake 10 minutes until cooked through, then change the oven's setting to broil and broil until browned on top. Serve hot.

Oysters Rockefeller image

There are as many so-called original recipes for oysters Rockefeller as there are types of oysters. One account has it that the dish first surfaced at Antoine's in New Orleans in 1899. It was said to have been devised by Jules Alciatore, a grandson of the restaurant's founders. According to the story, a shortage of snails from Europe had the restaurant in jitters, and Mr. Alciatore was experimenting in the kitchen, looking for a substitute. At that time, oysters were never cooked at all, let alone fancied up with a sauce. He did so, making a sauce of watercress, scallions, celery, anise, spinach and other seasonings. It was a big hit, and he named it after America's richest man, John D. Rockefeller. Some revisionists contend that spinach was not in the original dish. My version calls for celery, spinach, scallions, parsley, garlic, anchovy fillets and Tabasco. The anchovy is my own liberal interpretation.

Time 50m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 14

24 oysters
1 lb. fresh spinach
1/2 cup coarsely chopped celery
1/2 cup coarsely chopped scallions
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 clove garlic
2 anchovy fillets
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
2 tablespoons Ricard or Pernod
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Open the oysters, leaving them on the half shell, and reserve the oyster liquor. Arrange them in a baking pan; then, chill until ready to use.
  • Pick over the spinach and remove any tough stems and blemished leaves. Rinse well and place in a saucepan. Cover and cook, stirring, until wilted. Drain well, and squeeze to remove all moisture.
  • In the container of a food processor, combine the drained spinach, celery, scallions, parsley, garlic and anchovies. Blend to a fine texture.
  • In a skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter. Add spinach mixture. Cook and stir for about 1 minute. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining butter in a saucepan. Add the flour, blend, and stir with a wire whisk. Add the oyster liquor, stirring vigorously with the whisk. Stir in the cream, season with Tabasco, and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the spinach mixture, cheese and liqueur. Blend well and let cool. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Spoon equal parts of the spinach mixture on top of the oysters and smooth over the tops. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until piping hot.

Oysters Rockefeller image

In this classic recipe, the Rockefeller name refers to the dollar bill-green color of the sauce - and its richness, as it's loaded with butter, garlic, spinach and herbs. You can make the butter sauce up to three days ahead and store it in the refrigerator, then drop dollops of it on shucked oysters just before broiling. Watch the oysters carefully as they broil. You want the bread crumbs in the topping to turn golden and the oysters to warm up slightly but not cook through. Serve these with forks on the side; all the hot, buttery sauce makes them too slick for slurping.

Time 20m

Yield 4 to 6 servings (24 oysters)

Number Of Ingredients 10

8 tablespoons/113 grams unsalted butter
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1 cup finely chopped baby spinach
1 cup finely chopped parsley, leaves and tender stems
1 large shallot, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely grated, passed through a press or minced
Pinch of fine sea salt or table salt
1 lemon
Coarse, rock or kosher salt, or crumbled-up foil, for the pan (to stabilize the oysters)
24 oysters, shucked


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the bread crumbs and sauté until they are just a tiny bit golden, about 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach, parsley, shallot and garlic. Cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Remove from the heat and stir in a small pinch of salt.
  • Finely grate 1/2 teaspoon zest from the lemon and add it to the bread crumb mixture. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze out 1 tablespoon of the juice; mix into the pan.
  • Heat the broiler to high. Fill a baking pan (or two) with a 1/2-inch layer of salt or line the pan with crumbled up foil (to steady the oysters so the juices don't spill). Lay the oysters on top of the salt or foil. Spoon about 1/2 tablespoon of the sauce mixture on top of the oysters. Broil until just golden, 1 to 3 minutes. Serve hot, with a squeeze of lemon on top, if you like.

  • Preheat the oven to 400°. Spread a 1/2-inch-thick layer of rock salt on a large baking sheet and across the bottoms of 6 large plates.
  • Arrange the reserved oyster shells on the baking sheet. Put 1 oyster in each shell and top with 2 to 3 tablespoons of the sauce, spreading the sauce evenly out to the edge of the shell to completely cover the oyster. (Alternatively, transfer the sauce to a pastry bag fitted with a plain tip and pipe the sauce over the oysters.)
  • Bake until the sauce is lightly browned and the oysters begin to curl around the edges, about 20 minutes.
  • Using tongs or a spatula, carefully transfer the hot shells to the salt-covered plates and serve immediately.
