Well 1st off, I use my coffee grinder to grind my herbs and spices. So, I put in a LITTLE whole cinnamon for sweetness, french basil, 3 dryed red peppers and a hint of rosemary. I grinded the heck out of them till everything was powder.
I threw the oysters in a saute pan with all the oil it came with. I didnt add any other oil. I sauted it for a few minutes, then smashed all the oysters with a fork. Breaking it down. I tossed in all the spice mixture and cooked for another minute. Then I put in about a cup of crushed tomatos. Also put in a teaspoon of rice wine vinegar. Simmered on low for 5 minutes.
I have to say, it was very good!
I would still prefer them made in a cream sauce. But again.... Im lactose intollerant. All in all it was a success.
