    Cucina Casalingo's Note:

    Purchase oysters from a reputable seafood seller. The fresher the better, so ask when they were harvested and avoid oysters more than 3 days old. Look for oysters that are tightly closed and displayed on ice. At home, give them a good scrub and store them over ice in the refrigerator, either in a mesh bag or loosely wrapped in a kitchen towel. Do not place them directly on the ice - the fresh water will harm the. Adapted from Yankee Magazine.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    oysters

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Carefully shuck the oysters, reserving their liquor and bottom shell, and set aside.
    2. 2
      In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the heavy cream and lemon zest, then reduce until the cream has thickened, about 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Reduce heat and whisk in the butter, one piece at a time, until fully incorporated.
    4. 4
      Whisk in the lemon juice, then season with salt and pepper.
    5. 5
      Add oysters and their liquor to the sauce, then cook over a very low heat, until the edges begin to curl.
    6. 6
      Using about 1 tablespoon spinach (depending on the size of the shell), make a "bed" in the oyster shell, lay one oyster in the bed, and spoon a small amount of sauce over the top.
    7. 7
      Serve immediately.

      We made this for dinner last night using fresh oysters from the Oregon coast, the instructions were great on how to choose the oysters. :) All of the flavors and textures went really well together, also made a nice presentation.
