Oysters Amandine

Serves people


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. When it begins to bubble, add the almonds and garlic in a pile in the center of the pan. Cook until the almonds barely begin to brown, then remove them and the garlic quickly with a slotted spoon, draining the excess butter. Place them on a pan in a warm oven.
  2. Lower the heat and let the butter continue cooking until the solids at the bottom begin to brown. Carefully add the lemon juice, Worcestershire, and Tabasco, which may make the pan foam up briefly. Remove from heat.
  3. Heat the peanut oil to 375 degrees. Dredge the oysters through the remaining seasoned flour in a wide bowl. Shake off the excess flour. Fry the oysters until golden brown and drain in a large strainer over a pan.
  4. Place the oysters on warm plates. Nap with the sauce and top with the toasted almonds. Serve with lemon wedges.
