Florida Oyster Stew

Florida recipes oyster stew

Oyster Stew

Short of sitting down to a dozen fresh oysters on the half shell, my next favorite way to eat them is in oyster stew.


  • 6 quart sauce pan.


  • 21/2 dozen fresh oysters
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 6 cups heavy cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: sprinkle with parsley leaves or scallions for color.


  • This easy, but delicious recipe takes just a few minutes to heat the heavy cream to the point of starting to steam under medium heat. Add butter and oysters and bring back up to almost steaming and your soup is ready. DO NOT BOIL OR SCORCH CREAM! Add salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Makes a good four servings with 8 oysters in each bowl.


Oysters are very nutritional, but that is offset by the cream and butter. The result is amazing.
