Ingredients

1 pint Hilton’s Oysters
1/4 cup clam juice
1 Tbsp unsalted butter
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
½ medium onion

3 Tbsp chili sauce
2 cups half and half
1 Tbsp parsley, chopped

Directions

1. Combine the clam juice, butter, Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, pepper, and paprika in a saucepan over medium-high heat. When the butter melts, add the onions, oysters, ½ cup of the oyster liquor and cook, stirring, until the edges of the oysters begin to ruffle. Remove the oysters with a slotted spoon and keep warm.
