Oyster Chowder

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jennifer Lewis

I grew up on Oyster "stew". I like to "create" new things and this is what I came up with. I fix this for myself only and so I made it how I like it, and this is the result. Hope you like it.

OMG I'm just finishing it all off, I'm glad I was cooking for myself. Used Bluff Oyster's A NZ oyster and it was unreal. Will be doing again when I have a hot date around for dinner! :-)
