Paleo Fried Oyster Chowder

oyster chowder-01

It’s not that I wouldn’t have tried oyster on my own, but I am very grateful that my hubby introduced me to them right after we started dating.

Since then I’ve never met a oyster I didn’t like :) This quick and easy oyster stew recipe is sure to please any oyster lover, and it’s Paleo Friendly (using coconut cream instead of the half & half)! And although the stew itself is super yummy, I strongly encourage you make a few fried oysters to garnish!! (click HERE for my Grain Free Breading Recipe, just drain your oysters and generously coat them withe my breading mix and fry until golden brown in the healthy fat of your choice) The contrast of the crispy fried oyster with the creaminess of the stew is a true party in your mouth :)
