Oyster Stew

In late November, 2018, chef Ismail and volunteers from Island Grown Gleaning shucked 700 Martha’s Vineyard oysters in our kitchen! The frozen oysters will be distributed to Islanders in need, along with this easy recipe:

Serves 2

1 pint oysters packed in their juice
3 tablespoons butter
1 large yellow onion chopped
3 cups whole milk
1 cup half-and-half
salt and pepper to taste

Drain juice from oysters into small bowl. Set aside.

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add chopped onions and cook until translucent and tender, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add oyster liquor and cook 5 minutes. Add milk and half-and-half and heat to simmer. Add oysters and continue on simmer until outer edges of oysters curl, about 6-7 minutes. Add salt and black pepper, to taste.
