wonderful! Once I figured out how to shuck the oysters, the rest was easy. My fish guy tells me I should wash the shells, run them through the dishwasher, let them dry well, and then store them in an airtight bag in my freezer so the next time I make this I can buy pre-shucked oysters and still be able to make a grande presentation.
This dish combines two of the Chesapeake's most beloved foods: oysters and crabs. Cook on the bottom broiler rack, or breadcrumbs will burn before the oysters are cooked through.
