I fell in love with Oysters Rockefeller and Oysters Casino while in Culinary School. I began to experiment with other variations while working at The Kincaid Grill in Anchorage, AK and eventually made them a “go to” in my Culinary Quiver.
I created oyster night, a large raw and roasted oyster buffet once weekly, while working at The Tordrillo Mountain Lodge. It was a huge hit and we recreated many of the experiments that played out on the line of The Kincaid Grill. It was usually something like shown in the video, only with tons of butter and bread crumbs. We’d do beurre blanc and hollandaise as toppings, pesto roasted oysters, oysters on the half shell topped with scallop ceviche, you name it.
Why am I telling you all of this? Two reasons. One- I want you to know a little about me and where I am coming from. And two – I want you to think outside of the box when it comes to these deep see jewels. They are readily available in most supermarkets and relatively cheap. With a little practice opening them, I am confident that you will become comfortable incorporating them into your diet.
If you choose not to eat these on a regular basis, at least add this recipe to your mental file for a future potluck, family gathering or Holiday get together. You’ll surely impress your friends if you do!
Unfortunately, I don’t have any other pictures. But, this isn’t the last you’ll see of roasted oysters on this site… We’ll do the Pesto Roasted Oysters mentioned above, I’ll teach you how to make Hollandaise, Beurre Blanc, and Scallop Ceviche and I’ll update these into links when I post the videos.
Don’t forget that I’m only getting started on this project. I think we are nearing 40 videos on the road to 1,000, which is only four percent if you do the math!
For all of you who have supported my site up to this point, I am forever grateful. It is a lot of work and a huge challenge to me on a daily basis, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Alright. I hope you enjoy this one. Stay tuned for “What’s Next For PaleoNick.com?”, coming up tomorrow…
In the meantime, listen to that still soft voice encouraging you to,
