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.

smoked fish is lovely on pasta with goat cheese, scallions, and grilled veggies like zucchini rounds, strips of pepper, etc. (or roast till gently browned) and peas (blanched.) Everything compliments the smokiness of the fish rather than covering it. works great with smoked salmon, whitefish, clams mussles oysters...whatever.

The Most Important

DS... the most important thing here is that it turned out great and it tasted good. Sometimes I start working on something in the kitchen and I am not very sure what the end product will be, but that is what I like about the whole cooking experience. Some turn out great, some are just big busts!! Kinda like last night's dinner!!!

I think thats the fun of cooking. Don't get me wrong I love using other peoples recipes but after the first attempt I usually will tweak it to my taste or find a shortcut to save cooking preparation or time. I've had a few busts but like my dad always said, "Live and Learn"
