  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until it begins to foam.
  2. Cook and stir the celery, onion, and red bell pepper in the hot butter until soft, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir the half-and-half and parsley through the vegetable mixture; season with salt and black pepper.
  4. Continue cooking until the mixture just begins to boil; add the oysters and any liquid from the can to the stew along with Louisiana-style hot sauce. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook until the oysters begin to curl, 10 to 15 minutes more.
  5. Remove the saucepan from heat and allow the stew to sit 5 minutes before serving.

very colorful, but too different that no one wanted to touch it; they all went for the chili and chicken noodle soup, instead.

This is very good. I add a dash of salt and a lot of freshly ground black pepper. The hot sauce makes this great. This is very good with some small diced potatoes as well.

I agree it is colorful, you can leave out the red peppers, they were added for color for Christmas. Thanks for the reviews.

Very easy and good although next time I'm going to add more hot sauce. I couldn't taste the hot sauce at all.

Made according to recipe & will definitely make it again, delicious! Only substitute was I used 1 pint of skim milk & 1 pint of half & half (what I had on hand).
