Looks great. Where'd you find the Pacific oysters?
On sale at Whole Foods for $6. They were shucked and raw, not in the shell. Most were as big as an egg. The local Walmart also carries shucked, raw pacific oysters.
I travel to San Fran monthly and eat prime rib and pacific oysters at a place near my office in the old Hill Brothers Coffee building on the Embarcadero. Their halfshell oysters are huge and they quiver when you hit them with a squirt from a lemon slice. Takes two bites to down one.
Oysters on the halfshell are one of my favorites. I ate one of the ones I bought at Whole Foods and despite tasting good thought better of it and decided to cook the rest. I was going to fix oyster chowder until running across that Rockefeller recipe which was surprisingly quick and easy using a toaster oven. The initial plan was to use a muffin tin, fortunately I found some mini aluminum pie tins that my wife had saved from some $.50 mini fruit pies she gets at Walmart,
I got six rainbow trout filets for a buck a piece while I was shopping. Im going to broil those one day this week for dinner.
