My sisters and I loved this recipe. I make oyster stew all the time but had never had a smoked oyster like this. Quick and tastes wonderful. I did leave out the sherry because I don't use sherry or wine or anything like that in my cooking. I also used pepper and a few of the tops from my spring onion to garish. Served with Red Lobster Garlic Cheese biscuits. From now on when I want oyster soup this will be the recipe I use. Zurie I enjoyed this so much.
