    Baby Kato's Note:

    When I first got married, I couldn't cook, but I did charm my husband with this dish. This was one of the first dishes that I made, that I didn't ruin. It is a very hearty, robust, satisfying, comfort meal. Oysters, shrimp and rice...ummmm, perfect with a crusty bread and butter. Please don't let the ingredients turn you off....they blend beautifully together...I hope that you will enjoy this as much as we do.

      I really don't know why it took me so long to tag this. I have looked at it many times over a period of years and very glad that I finally tried it. After talking to BK I used smoked oysters as fresh (or even "fresh" in a jar) isn't available here. The recipe is simple and easy to follow. I made as directed and then did add some Buffalo sauce to my serving and DH was happy with it as was. It's a twofer that was a winner with both of us. Thank you much my friend, we love your recipe. :D
