Oysters Rockerfeller

Oysters Rockefeller consists of oysters on the half-shell that have been topped with a rich sauce of butter, parsley and other green herbs, and bread crumbs, then baked or broiled. Lemon wedges are the typical garnish oysters are one of few foodstuffs immediately evocative of celebration. Whether borne aloft through a noisy restaurant on a silver platter, or slurped from the shell on a pebbly beach, they scream special occasion – yet even among their many fans, they remain an occasional treat in Britain, despite the fact our waters contain some of the finest bivalves in the world
