Maryland Oyster Stew

November/December 2013

Your rating: None Average: 1.5 (4 votes)

This delicate oyster soup recipe sets the tone for celebration at any meal. We made this stew healthier by primarily using low-fat milk and increasing the amount of vegetables. Don’t worry about shucking the oysters—most supermarket seafood departments carry shucked oysters. Serve with crusty bread to sop up all the delicious bits at the bottom of the bowl.

1 Review for Maryland Oyster Stew

this is not traditional Maryland Oyster Stew.

C'mon, anybody can tell you that paprika and hot sauce have no place in a traditional Maryland Oyster Stew. I'm from Maryland, and I can tell you that's just not authentic. Maryland Oyster stew is white with just a hint of gold, which comes from saffron. Red oyster stew is not something that anybody from Maryland would eat. Additionally, you don't put milk in the stew. Cream only. Sometimes you have to tell the doctor to go to hell, calories and cholesterol be dammed. Eat it right or don't eat it at all. After all, its a treat, you don't eat it every day.

Well, it does have oysters and cream.
