Fresh oysters and fennel combine for a beautiful starter.
I am in culinary school and today's assignment was oysters so I thought I would give this recipe a try. Out of 15 different dishes that were prepared by other students this one was, across the board, the favored. Excellent flavor! I will make it when I have my own restraunt for sure! - 07 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Our whole family really enjoyed these. The flavor was quite different from the way any of us had eaten oysters before. Kids even liked them although I heard a "too slimy" comment or two. The fennel was unique and very much enjoyed. Thanks. - 04 Jul 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was really, really yummy. Use a good, meaty oyster. I also recommend using unsalted butter because most oysters themselves are salty enough. A light, crisp slightly dry white wine is divine with this dish. - 03 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
