Oyster rockefeller dip
A rich and creamy appetizer that is guaranteed to surprise your guests is oyster rockefeller dip. Oyster Rockefeller is a traditional recipe that was first developed in the late 1800s at Antoine's Restaurant in New Orleans, Louisiana. It blends the saline flavor of fresh oysters with a savory sauce made from a combination of butter, herbs, and breadcrumbs.
The following ingredients are required to prepare oyster rockefeller dip:
- 1 pint of chopped, drained, and shucked oysters
- 4 tablespoons butter
- green onions, cut into 1/4 cup
- 1/4 cup finely minced celery
- 1/4 cup minced parsley
- 1/4 cup minced spinach
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 teaspoon Paprika
- 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
Start by putting a big saucepan on medium heat and melting the butter. Cook the spinach, green onions, celery, parsley, and water until the spinach is wilted, about 5-7 minutes. After adding the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, simmer for an additional two to three minutes.
Heavy cream should then be added once the mixture has reached a boil. Simmer for five minutes, or until the sauce has thickened, on low heat. Add the chopped oysters after seasoning with paprika, salt, and pepper.
Set your oven's temperature to 350°F (180°C). In a baking dish, spread the oyster mixture and top with more breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the top is bubbling and golden brown.
With crackers or sliced baguette for dipping, serve the oyster rockefeller dip hot. At your upcoming party or gathering, this creamy and tasty appetizer is guaranteed to be a hit.
If you want to give the traditional Oyster Rockefeller dish a change, try giving the dip a smokey taste by adding some diced bacon or ham. For an additional bit of fire, add some diced bell peppers or jalapenos. The options are boundless with so many ways to alter this delectable dip.
