My brother in law Joe loves to cook. He has become the go to chef on the Burke side. I don’t mind because everything he makes is delicious! After Thanksgiving we went up to my in laws lakehouse to spend the weekend there. Joe did some serious cooking and let me be his sous chef. Now let me tell you, cooking can be stressful, especially when you’re cooking for other people. Well attempting to photograph each step of the recipes in poor lighting while not burning things is more difficult than you would think. So my hat goes off to all you food bloggers who successfully take great photos of your food while cooking. On Joe’s menu for lunch Saturday was clam chowder and baked oysters! Both of which turned out great. He got the clams and oysters from Whole Foods which is where I would suggest buying any seafood, it’s always super fresh. The recipes are linked at the bottom in case you would like to recreate them for yourself. And if you don’t like shellfish, sorry this post isn’t for you!
We found these baby crabs inside the oysters! They were still alive 😦
The topping for the oysters
This is where we had to improvise, we needed an immersion blender but didn’t have one. A regular blender worked fine but just wasn’t as easy.
Thanks Joe for another delicious meal!
