    I like it a lot.

    Made my mouth water thinking about it after just reading the title of the topic.

    Always in the past I made Oyster stew or clam chowder.

    Pretty similar in a lot of ways, cut and saute some celery and onion in bacon fat until tender.
    Add the seafood, add milk (Lactaid in my case, me and lactose not getting along so well)

    A few chopped chives or green onion to garnish.

    But this last batch I was in a mood for both at the same time.
    So I opened a can of each. Liquid from the cans went in to simmer the celery.

    I had about 2/3rds of a package of artifical crab chunks, so I sliced that up and threw that in too.

    Made for some good eating for about 3 days.

    If you can find the big sweet Videla green onions, they make a wicked good pot of soup.

    Cut the bottoms to go in with the Celery and cut the tops to go on top just before serving.

    With either oyster crackers or some good premium saltines, its fine eating.

    Man, I did not save any for Sunday, it's all in my belly. I would love to lay down about 2 plates of good fried oysters with a bowl of clam chowder

    My dad made a fine oyster stew. He and I were the only ones that ate it in our family.

    My grandmother made some fine oyster stew. Sometimes in the fall she would make it in a 20 gallon cast iron cauldron on an open fire. My mother was one of 12 so lots and lots of grand kids would show up. I miss those days.

    My wife's family grew up eating salmon stew which is very similar. Can't say I ever developed a taste for either, although fried oisters are a welcome treat on a cold day.

    It is said in New England that if you must cook an oyster you just have to cook it in either Cream or sweet butter and other than oysters the only other two proper ingredients for oyster stew are Cream and Butter, so it is acceptable.

    tilapia is not seafood, it is an abomination raised in a cesspool

    I like clam chowder, have tried oyster stew, and didn't care for it. I can get down a few very small ones in gumbo, but if they are very big just do not like them. I do not even like the real big ones fried, but sure like the smaller ones fried.

    I love me some fried froglegs , but can't handle them stewed either. I am the same way with okra, maybe fried anything is better. lol

    I would love to try oyster stew.

    My favorite way to have them so far is cooked on the half shell on a charcoal grill with butter and garlic
