Oyster Rockefeller

Serves 2 dozen Oysters

Ingredients

24 oysters, shucked
3 cups rock salt
1/2 sweet onion, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
2 handfuls baby spinach, cleaned
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 shots Pernod
1 pinch salt to taste
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs

Directions
  1. Place rock salt in a large casserole dish or cookie sheet.
  2. Shuck oysters and place on rock salt.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Heat a large sauté pan to medium heat. Add onions and oil and cook for 3 minutes or until soft.
  5. Add spinach and cook until soft and then add cream. Cook cream until nice and thick. Add pernod and then season with salt. Place 1 tablespoon in each oyster. Make sure that the mixture is to the top.
  6. Top each oyster with Parmesan cheese and then breadcrumbs.
  7. Cook in the oven for 12 minutes and then let sit outside of oven for 3 minutes before serving.

Chef Tip: If you do not have penod then using 1/2 tablespoon of ground fennel seed works great.
