Oysters & whipped cream recipe

fastlanenz, Jun 23, 10:10am
Hi there,
have just come across a recipe - a starter - which is basically raw oysters with worcestershire sauce and a few seasonings, topped with whipped cream ... . I don't eat raw oysters myself, but am very curious on the whipped cream topping ... this is not a joke, has anyone heard of a similar recipe and did they think it's a recipe worth trying? Doing research for a school cookbook. Many thanks,

My mum used to have crayfish meat mixed up in whipped cream with a lil tomato suace in it - its very rich!

LOL fastlane. I have tried to wrap my head around this one and quite frankly (this is my opinion only) it sounds rather disgusting. However, I am an oyster lover and raw, with a squeeze of lemon juice is just right for me. If I was going to add anything it would be a shot of frozen vodka or an ice cold sauvignon blanc. I don't usually like my savs too cold but the colder wine gets the less flavour it has and nothing should compete with the flavour of raw oysters IMO.

Well, whipped cream tastes the same as unwhipped cream so guess there'd be no diffrence to the flavour and cream is used a lot on/in savoury foods. As above, would be a richer flavour. Not sure vream and raw oysters appeals to me though.

Mayonnaise, tomato sauce and a few drops of Tabasco sauce, is how a basic seafood dressing, is made.
Whipped cream ? maybe to you it looked like whipped cream, at the time.
We eat oysters raw on ice, in our family, little like whiskey, straight, on the rocks or leave well alone.
I would regurgitate raw oysters and whipped cream for sure.
I would shunt a shot of vodka before the oysters.
