“This is a family favourite which has become a Christmas day staple – perfect with champagne!”
6 oysters shucked (in shell)
4 shallots (small)
1 clove garlic
1 large handful of spinach
75g cheddar cheese
100ml double cream
Preheat the grill.
Finely chop shallots and crush garlic, sauté in a little butter until soft.
Add spinach and allow to wilt.
Place 1 teaspoon of mixture on top of each oyster and sprinkle cheese over the top.
Add 1 tablespoon of double cream to each oyster and place under the hot grill.
Cook until cheese begins to bubble (oysters should be just set).
