    The original recipe of his American shellfish classic was created in New Orleans. This is my version. Freshly cooked oysters are topped with a spinach, bacon, breadcrumbs and Pernod, then placed on a bed of coarse salt and lightly grilled before serving immediately. These are very impressive!

    Fresh oysters are delicious in their most natural state, with a squeeze of lemon and a little salt, pepper and Tabasco® if desired. At their best when waters are cold, they are a great treat around Christmas, New Year and of course for Valentine's Day.

    This Japanese dish is a must for oyster lovers. The tomato and chilli jam adds a note of heat which goes well with the batter-coated oysters. We like to use the large size 1 oysters but size 2 works just as well.

    In the southern US, especially in Virginia, deep-fried oysters are on the menu almost every day. These are fried in crispy cracker crumbs. They're a great starter with tartar sauce for dipping and go especially well alongside a crisp green salad.

    Did you know the habanero pepper derives its name from the city of Havana? So how about a spicy oyster shooter, the Cuban way?

    This is a deliciously different way to serve oysters. The spicy butter mixture is fabulous. For safety, use leather gloves when shucking hot oysters. Sounds like a lot of trouble, but well worth the work.
