Grandma's Oyster Stew

76

A smooth, creamy soup with rich flavors.

6
1 pint oysters
4 Tbs butter
2 shallots, minced
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt & pepper to taste
4 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp paprika
Oyster crackers (optional)
Drain the oyster liquid into another container for later use. Check the oysters for any shells or sand. Chill the oysters and liquid separately. In a 3 to 4 quart saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallots and saute until they are soft and clear. Add the oysters and cook until the edges slightly curl. Stir in the garlic and a few pinches of salt and pepper. Cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the milk, cream, oyster liquid and paprika. Bring to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes at a gentle bubble. Serve the stew right away with oyster crackers.

Who doesn't love having a good Caesar salad! However, having Caesar salad in restaurants is never a healthy choice. As, it is always loaded with excess fats and calories. I have prepared an entirely healthy homemade Caesar salad in a tortilla bowl that rivals that of any restaurant.

Toss with the crisp lettuce, drizzle with the guilt-free flavorful dressing and finally top with croutons and cheese for the perfect main course!
