I'm not sure when it happened, but my daughter has become oyster lover. Baby Girl used to be so dang picky, so parents of persnickety kids should take heart.
When we were working out our holiday menus, she suggested oysters on Christmas Eve. Which sent me into a shellfish fever. What would it be? On the half shell? Fried? Wrapped in bacon? Rockefellered? How about yes to all of the above. I'll make oysters a dozen different ways, I foolishly declared.
Now I'm in a pickle. I can only come up with 10 recipes. What am I missing?
On the half shell A Bloody Mary shooter Dredged in a curry powder and flour and fried Po'Boy Angels on Horseback Oysters Casino Oysters Rockefeller Oyster Stew Oysters Bienville BBQ-ed Oysters
Maybe I should quit fixating on coming up with a dozen. Ten's a good number. Unless somebody's got a savory suggestion.
