Shellfish Recipes: Clams, Crab, Lobster, Oysters, Scallops & Shrimp



(Domestic Receipt-Book, 1858)

Take the oysters from the liquor, and place some at the bottom of the dish, then grate some bread over them, a little nutmeg, pepper, salt, and cloves.

Add another laying of oysters, and the seasoning, a little butter, and a glass of wine.

Cover the whole with grated bread, and bake half an hour, or perhaps a little more.

There will be liquor enough without adding any water or oyster broth.
