Default Oysters Rockefeller and Wrenchefeller

This week's throwdown was "It came from the sea." Living at the beach, I would have loved this category during the summer. Once fall gets here, its too cold to go fishing, and most of the roadside guys have closed up shop. When I think fall or winter seafood, I think oysters. Usually oysters means getting a couple bushells on a saturday afternoon to have friends over, drink some beer and watch some football. We couldn't really do that this weekend, so my wife and I just bought a couple dozen and had a nice little Sunday night dinner. These are local stump sound oysters which aren't the prettiest, but they are pretty big and have a lot of that salty,ocean flavor that make oysters what they are.



I started with some shallots and garlic in butter.



Next I added some baby spinach.





We found some spanish chorizo at the store, and I wanted to try to incorporate it with some of these too. I made a roux, and added some pepper jack, cheddar, and heavy cream to make a thick cheese sauce.



Here is my 'on the grill' shot with the two sauces. I added some cream and a little flour to the spinach to make something similar to creamed spinach.



Once they started opening up, I took them off and started making them up. The rockefellers had creamed spinach, bacon, parmesan, panko, and some parsley. The "wrenchefellers" had the cheese sauce and chorizo.





I threw them on the smokey joe under a chimney of hot coals to melt everything up.





Here they are plated with with some hot sauce.





These were really good, but very rich. My wife and I could only eat two of each, and then just ate the rest from the shell with a little hot sauce. Thanks for looking.

Those look absolutely over the top awesome to me! I love oysters and I grew up as a little boy being served Oysters Rockefeller. I just thought it was good and didn't realize how special it really is. Really nice to see the creativity. I love it.

When you have a lot of oysters at your disposal, you can get get creative. When you have a dozen, they are on the half shell..... Out here, oysters are stupid expensive!

Very nice post and thanks!

Now that is just over the top. Damn if I haven't leared something new again today. I love the idea of using a chimney over the oysters. Will definitely have to try that. Thanks for the post and pron.

Confession - I hate oysters. Having said that, I'd sooooooooo try these anyway!

Thanks for all the kind words. I wish I could take credit for the homeade broiler, but I actually saw it on Good Eats a few years back. He was broiling a steak using this method and it looked great.

For some reason I can't see any of the pix. But I did look at them in the TD thread earlier and they looked great!

Looks good.

I to had some Oysters last night. I did pork but for 12 hours in the UDS and put 2 dz. on the top rack at the end. Not as good as yours but still a nice little appetizer.

Tell me about it! My earliest childhood memories were eating raw oysters with hot sauce on my back porch in Pass Christian, MS. I love 'em but now they're just a treat on special occasions.

The ones in this post look mighty tasty. I do make oyster dressing and crawfish dressing for Thanksgiving so I will be having some soon
