    ~LOVED THIS RECIPE~ Used canned oysters instead of fresh, skipped the cream and used milk for less fatting version... turned out great...daughter and husband both loved it!!  -  19 Dec 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup is awesome. I'm not too crazy about oysters, so I used shrimp instead!! Also, I sauteed the shrimp beforehand in butter and seaasonings. I will be making this again soon!!  -  29 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was not all that impressed with this receipe. Ther is no mention of rinsing the oysters to get rid of that grainy taste. There are no seasonings mentioned, so if you don't add your own, than bland city. I think the reciepe called for too much cream also, and the cream tastes very 'raw' or uncooked. It seems it should be added sooner to give it time to blend with the veggies and oysters. I'm a huge oyster fan, and this just didn't do it for me.  -  02 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
