Too bad these succulent oysters were literally drowned in butter. Personally, I prefer to eat oysters on a half-shell including the juice, raw or blanched with just a twist of lemon or vinegar dip. Other preparations with added condiments "spoil" the distinctive flavor of oyster. But outside the family, I only have a few friends who can eat oysters the way I do. On a dare, they'd eat baked oysters---but too squeamish to chew.
So this was another appetizer on a Saturday night-out with a couple of friends. We drowned our sorrows, laughed at our faux pas and ate oysters to awaken the senses.
