Oysters, Algarve Style

Serves 4

  • 24 oysters ;
  • 70 grs of butter ;
  • 1 bunch of parsley ;
  • 1 dl of dry white wine ;
  • 50 grs of bread crumbs ;
  • salt to taste ;
  • pepper to taste


Wash the oysters, with the help of a brush, in several successive pans of water, to remove he sand.
Then place a tray in the oven. Lay the oysters in the tray and let them open.
After they have opened, take out the edible part.
Take the water that the oysters release during the cooking and pass it through a fine strainer. Place a heat-resistant platter or tray on the flame, and in it put the edible part of the oysters.
Add the water in which the oysters were cooked and the white wine. Let everything thicken a bit.
Season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle with bread crumbs and chopped parsley. Place in the oven and cook au gratin.

Hint: Use medium-sized and purified oysters.
