Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups water
3 dozen small to medium oysters, in their liquor
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup finely chopped celery
3/4 teaspoon Cajun seafood seasoning

2 cups whipping cream

Cooking Directions:

  1. Add water to the oysters and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Strain and reserve oysters and oyster water; refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Combine butter, celery, seafood seasoning and 3/4 cup of reserved oyster water in a large skillet. Cook over high heat for 3 minutes, shaking pan (versus stirring) almost constantly.
  3. Add remaining 1/2 cup oyster water and continue cooking and shaking the pan for 1 minute.
