My husband loved this recipe. He said it was one of the best soups he ever had!
I normally make a very plain oyster stew using only oysters, butter and milk/cream. I was looking for somethig a little different and more flavorful. This was the perfect recipe. I followed the recipe exactly and my oyster stew turned out wonderful! My family really enjoyed it. Will be serving it again at our Christmas gathering.
