Thelma's Oyster Special

Recipe from: Louise Austin

This recipe is from my aunt, Louise Austin, from the cookbook, What's Cooking with FLO?, favorite bayou country recipes of FLO (For Ladies Only) from the First Baptist Church in Napoleonville, Louisiana published in 1990.

1 block butter
1 onion, finely chopped
1 pod garlic, minced
1 stick celery, chopped
3 tablespoons flour
½ cup oyster juice
1 pint oysters, cleaned
1 cup half & half
¼ cup white wine
½ cup grated cheese
1 pound lump crabmeat
salt and pepper
dash of paprika

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat. Sauté onion, celery, and garlic until soft. Add flour, stirring well with the onion mixture. Add oyster juice. Blend well with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes on low heat. Add half & half and simmer until thick.

In a 2 quart buttered casserole dish, arrange oysters on the bottom. Top with lump crabmeat; pour sauce on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in a 350°F oven until cheese bubbles. Garnish with parsley and paprika.
