Yield: 6 Servings
It’s here? I can’t believe it! We succeeded!
And I still need to finish cleaning, preparing dinner, and wrapping presents. I’ve finished all of my shopping, at least. So, there you go.
However, I have a bowl of this delectable oyster stew and all the pleasant memories it conjures to look forward to tomorrow.
My grandma used to make a low-carb variation of this stew on Christmas Eve. She occasionally also made it for New Year’s. I anticipated that even when I was a child.
It was very creamy and flavorful. Without it, the holidays wouldn’t have even begun!
Oyster stew-related FAQ
Do I need to use raw or fresh oysters?
Let me start by saying that fresh oysters are ideal for this because they have more flavour and come with their own “liquor.” However, in a pinch, I’ve been known to prepare this with cooked oysters. For the liquid you could acquire from fresh oysters, I substituted clam juice. Although it wasn’t the same, it satisfied my craving.
Can I omit the dairy from this?
When serving dish to someone who avoid dairy, I have indeed substituted canned coconut milk for the heavy cream.
What should I do with the leftovers?
For up to three days. No, I wouldn’t freeze it.
I would want for this stew to be a part of their holiday memories as well since I know that I started eating it when I was very little and that it has been a part of my holiday memories for as long as I can remember.
One, though, is quite particular, so I won’t hold my breath on that one.
