- 1 1/3 cup squeezed cooked spinach*
- 1 1/2 teaspoon unsalted butter
- 3 shallots, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh tarragon or 3/4 teaspoon dried
- 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
- 24 oysters, shucked, rounded shells and liquor (juices) reserved
- 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
Preheat the broiler. Cover the bottom of a baking sheet with dried beans or rock salt. Carefully nestle rounded side of oyster shells in beans and place 1 oyster into each. If you have oyster liquor (juices) left over, let any grit settle to bottom and spoon liquor into spinach sauce. Stir sauce and spoon a generous 1 tablespoon onto each oyster. Sprinkle with cheese. Broil until tops are browned and sauce is heated through, about 4 minutes. Serve warm.
*Steamed from about 1 pound fresh, or a little less than a 16-ounce bag frozen chopped spinach cooked according to package directions.
