Shellfish Recipes: Clams, Crab, Lobster, Oysters, Scallops & Shrimp



(Mrs. Lincoln's Boston Cook Book, 1884)

Open the oysters; look them over carefully; remove any fine pieces of shell which may adhere to them; then season slightly with salt and pepper, and let them stand half an hour in the ice chest.

Serve on fancy oyster plates, or on the deep half-shell, with slices of lemon.

Serve with small squares of buttered brown bread.
