What do I do with whole boiled oysters?

ok, I bought them because they have a lot of iron in them. However, I don't even know if I'll like them "lol". It's called All Natural Whole Boiled Oysters in water by Ace of Diamonds.

Without getting too fancy, how can I prepare these? I suppose I could try eating them plain, but anything else I can do with them? Once again...without getting too fancy. I'm also looking to keep calories down.

I do like seafood, and for new years eve, we had clams (that were shucked from the beach). I was never too too crazy about clams, but I will eat them.

Give your oysters a quick saute in a bit of butter to curl the edges. Add some low fat evaporated milk and a bit of low fat milk. Salt, pepper, paprika. That is a basic, lower fat, oyster stew and very good! The evaporated milk gives a certain richness without the calories.

You could also look up a recipe for oysters rockefeller - you don't have the shells, but you could alter the recipe to keep it lower fat and just heat in a casserole dish.
