Easy canned oyster recipes?

to keep my spirits up, while waiting for hurricane irene to hit, i bought a few "gourmet" items at the market. one thing i brought home was two 8 ounce cans of whole oysters. i don't wish to make a stew, i don't think. most recipes i've seen online call for fresh oysters. i really didn't think this thing through, i'm afraid. previously, my experiences with oysters have been pretty much limited to raw oysters and lightly grilled oysters. and stew. what relatively easy dish can i make with my canned oysters? any help would be welcome.

+1! Are they smoked?

DH suggested baking them with breadcrumbs and cheese. Have not tried it.

Dump the canned oysters into a strainer and either keep the liquid for another recipe or discard.

Then lay them onto paper towels to dry them more.

Dip into a tempura batter and deep fry until golden.

Butter a piece of toast and cut into quarters.

Put one fried oyster between two quarters of toast and munch out!

Serious Yum! 4 Yums on the Yum Meter!

I drain mine and then place one in each hole of a snail dish or just a few in a ramekin. Cover with garlicky bechamel and sprinkle with with cheese and paprika. Then stick them under the grill till golden and the cheese melted. Serve with crusty bread of choice :)

haven't tried this with canned, but the fresh....:

dry off on paper towel - in a hot pat, 2 pats of butter + olive oil - toss & fry quick - mebbe 2 mins tops - remove oysters, add chopped scallion/shallot saute til soft, add panko & brown panko - adjust consistency to a "crumb mix" - add back oysters to heat thru and serve. grated cheese as you may wish - I serve on fresh spinach / arugula / greens / leaves with a side of grits.

It has been my experience that the notion of canned oysters is much better than the reality. I do not own a cat but a close friends cat got my second can as a Christmas present many years ago.
