Oyster Soup

It's almost time again for the Knysna Oyster Festival; 10 days of food, wine and all sorts of outdoor sporting adventures.  If you're an oyster fan, it's a great time to be in town.  Most of the restaurants get involved and come up with all sorts of creative oyster-focused dishes.

Here's an easy oyster soup:

  1. 1 tin smoked oysters, cut into halves
  2. 1 tin mushroom soup
  3. 40ml dry sherry
  4. 200ml cream
  5. a handful of flat-leaf parsley, chopped
  6. a bit of lemon zest and juice
  7. a few drops of tabasco
  8. 50g of biltong, chopped roughly
  9. a few spoons of full cream yoghurt
  • heat the mushroom soup in a pot
  • when the soup is hot, add the halved oysters and sherry
  • let this heat slowly, but don't boil
  • add the cream and continue heating
  • when the soup is hot,  dish up into bowls
  • put a spoonful of yoghurt in the centre of each bowl, then add a little biltong, some parsley and a sprinkle of lemon zest
  • add a few drops of tabasco onto the yoghurt and also a squeeze of lemon
