OYSTER-SOUP(SP)          USENET Cookbook          OYSTER-SOUP(SP)
ARTICHOKE OYSTER SOUP
     OYSTER-SOUP - Chicken broth with artichokes and 
poached
     oysters
     This is a modern cajun-style recipe that I adapted 
from a
     local convenience-food cookbook by Jean Durkee. 
 It's an
     intriguing combination of modern American ingredients 
with
     traditional cajun flavorings.
INGREDIENTS (Serves 6)
     6 Tbsp    butter, melted.
     1/2 cup   shallots (chopped fine)
     1/4 tsp   thyme
     1         bay leaf
     1/2 tsp   cayenne pepper
     2 Tbsp    flour
     14 oz     chicken broth (more or less won't hurt)
     4 cups    oysters Drained; reserve liquid. Or use 
less, to
               taste.
     14 oz     cooked artichoke hearts
     2 tsp     salt
     1/4 tsp   tabasco sauce
     1/2 cup   whipping cream
     3 Tbsp    parsley (chopped fresh)
PROCEDURE
          (1)  In a 3-quart casserole, melt butter and 
sauté
               shallots. When shallots are translucent, 
add
               thyme, bay leaf, and cayenne pepper. 
 Add flour
               and whisk well.
          (2)  Add broth, oyster water, artichoke hearts, 
salt,
               and tabasco. Bring to a boil.
          (3)  Add oysters and parsley. Simmer on medium, 
partly
               covered, for exactly 5 minutes. Add whipped 
cream
               and serve immediately.
NOTES
     Fresh parsley tastes much better than dried parsley. 
 If the
     oysters are bigger than a small bite-size, cut 
them up
     before adding them to the soup. Use the smallest 
oysters you
     can find.
     When I'm not making a double recipe, I usually 
dump the
     entire 1-cup container of whipping cream into the 
soup, even
     though that's double what the recipe calls form.
     The timing on cooking the oysters is fairly critical. 
 If
     you overcook them, they will be rubbery.
RATING
     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 20 minutes.  Precision: 
measure the
     spices.
