"Just adding a little pep to our old friend smoked oysters. This is an easy tasty appetizer. If you don't like spicy cut back on the jalapeno & hot sauce. You may use toast slices but I prefer small mini bite crackers. There are about 10-12 oysters in a can and I like to allow 4-5 per person SOooooo 2 tins really only serves 4. You maycut the oysters in half but that is cutting it a bit thin."

I usually just make smoked oyster dishes for DH, since he is the smoked oyster lover in the house, but this time I tried one myself, and was surprised that I liked the smoked oyster with the lime, cilantro and hot sauce (I made his on crackers and mine on bread). I love raw oysters in a similar way, so I guess it shouldn't be a surprise, but it was. I think for someone who might be tentative on the flavor of smoked oysters, this is the way to serve them!

TwisSis RIP Forever in our Kitchen

Until I came to Iceland to marry Siggi 15 yrs ago, he'd never eaten a smoked oyster. Even then he didn't as you can't buy them here. During our 1st trip together to the US, my sister & I shared them w/him in a way similar to your recipe & he's been a fan ever since. I made your recipe as written for him as an after work snack today & now we'll have to wait for our traveling supply person to renew our stock = A sml price to pay for something so yummy. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
