put them in the refrigerator.

Cream of Shallots Sauce:

In a saucepan, cook the shallots, white wine, oyster juice and lemon
juice until all of the liquid has evaporated. Add the cream and bring to a
strong boil, whisking constantly. Whip in the small pieces of butter until
melted. Remove from heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Strain
through fine sieve into another pan and keep warm.


In a large saute pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon
of butter. Heat until the butter sizzles.

Add the oysters and cook for 1 minute on each side until light brown

Remove and place the oysters on paper towels to soak up some of the

Warm serving plates. Pour some of the sauce onto the plates and place
an oyster shell in the center of the plate with a garnish of parsley and
half a lime.

Arrange the oysters in circular pattern around the garnish. Serve
