Perhaps the ultimate retro cocktail party snack, smoked oysters are something people either love or hate. If you love smoked oysters, you will go gaga over these--which we've updated by gently laying each tender, succulent smoked oyster on a crunchy potato chip, with a dab of sour cream and a sprinkle of pungent chives to round out the flavors and textures.
