6 servings (serving size: 2 oysters)

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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir gently.

Step 3

Place bread in a food processor; process until coarse crumbs measure 1/2 cup. Combine breadcrumbs and butter in a small bowl.

Step 4

Arrange oysters on a broiler pan. Spoon about 1 tablespoon crab mixture over each oyster; sprinkle each with about 1 teaspoon breadcrumb mixture. Broil 7 minutes or until tops are browned and oysters are done. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with chives, if desired.

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.
