Cook's Notes

If you have your fishmonger shuck oysters for you, be sure to ask for the liquor (the liquid that escapes during shucking); it adds a lot of flavor.

    Great base recipe to get that vitamin A and Zinc. I used 2 cups whole milk / 1 cup stock, upped it to 3 leeks, and finished with a healthy shot of hot sauce and chives. This is a keeper.
