Sage-Brined Roast Turkey with Oyster Dressing
New York City chef Jonathan Waxman gave us this recipe for a sage-infused roast turkey with a dressing that brims with wild rice, hazelnuts, and oysters.
Shrimp and Oyster Perloo
One-pot rice dishes can be remarkably adaptable and easy to cook. Our favorite is perloo, from the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a cousin of jambalaya that traces its origins to the family of Middle Eastern dishes known as pilafs. Like other rice-based specialties, such as arroz con pollo and biriyani, perloo can be made with a wide range of ingredients; in this case, we use country ham and shrimp.
Bordeaux-based chef Philippe Téchoire makes his oyster batter with beer to lighten it and to add extra flavor. These oyster fritters are meltingly tender with a batter that is surprisingly airy.
Baked Oysters with Bacon and Spinach
Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill in Birmingham, Alabama, shared this recipe for a lighter twist on classic oysters Rockefeller.
Oysters Rockefeller were created in New Orleans, at the legendary Antoine’s. The restaurant refuses to give a recipe, but we do know that neither bacon nor spinach is involved. Instead, the oysters are topped with a roux full of herbs and vegetables, then combined with bread crumbs and broiled until the bivalves are tender and a delicate crust forms.
