    • Step 2: Using a medium saucepan, not too large, add water and bring to a boil. When the water boils, add the oysters and cook for another 3 minutes. Then turn off the heat, remove the oysters using a slotted spoon. Reserve the oyster broth for about 3 cups and set aside.

    Additional notes

    • Oysters have a lot of sandy soil attached to them, and then we still extract their liquid, so when preparing them, they must be washed thoroughly, remember to soak in salt water first.
    • In the stirring step, the dough must be stirred continuously and must not be thickened, but smooth.
    • In the cooking steps, you must pay attention to the fire at the right level and pay attention otherwise it will burn or darken.

    4. Some tips for choosing oysters for this recipe

    For the perfect taste of oyster stew, we recommend using Fishermen's Net's fresh-harvested oysters. But in many cases where fresh oysters cannot be used, you can:

    • Jarred shucked oysters: This ingredient is cheaper, more economical and also easier to find at your local grocery stores. Remember to keep the oyster liquor in the jar.
    • Canned oysters: Poor in taste but not too bad, and it's cheap too. You can add a smoky flavor from smoked canned oysters if you like.
    • Fresh shucked oysters: They are shucked from live oysters and are then packaged in plastic packaging, and you can easily find them in some Asian grocery stores. However, the flavor that you wanted to enjoy in this stew - briny flavor - will be gone.
