Recipe from "Flavors of Cape Cod" cookbook.
Wellfleet, Cape Cod is known for oysters and my husband has a oyster grant down there on the Audubon.
The picture is of my husband's biggest oyster at the Wellfleet Oyster Fest held here every year. His was the biggest and won $200 dollars for it and gave $100 to promote oyster growing in Wellfleet.
