This recipe is great as an appetizer served over crackers or sliced toasted French bread. Also, the dish can be poured over pasta if enough gravy is made. This recipe has the basic ingredients. You should make the sauce as thick as you like. Never use cold water when thickening any gravy or roux. It will ruin the bond between the flour and oil.

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt the butter in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the onions, bell pepper, garlic, green onions, and celery in the melted butter until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the oysters to the vegetable mixture and cook until the oysters are cooked through, about 10 minutes more.

  • Stir the Creole seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce into the oysters and vegetables to combine. Scatter the flour over the mixture and stir until thickened. Slowly pour the chicken stock into the mixture, stirring as you add it. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook and stir until the liquid reaches a desired thickness, 10 to 15 minutes.

I used this recipe. I used seasoning salt and kikomannan sauce instead of other seasoning and served it over rice. It is like a delicious seafood gumbo very tasty and worth the time it takes to make w/o over-cooking anything. Read More

My wife and I just finished our second bowl for the evening. This was AWESOME! Served over white rice I made no changes or alterations other than using red bell pepper simply because that's what I had. Thanks for the recipe. I just noticed the Add photo button but there's none left to photograph...lol. Read More

I used 4T butter and omitted the celery and bell pepper because I didn't have any. Used Old Bay instead of Cajun seasoning. Ate with rice. This is the ultimate oyster lover's comfort food. Yum! Read More

A big fan of AR this just wasn't good at all. I used the name brand seasoning which made it way too salty. A waste of good seafood (We added shrimp) I should have known better always look for a recipe that has individual spices not a mix.. Read More
