  • 4 large tablespoonfuls of butter
  • 1 teaspoonful of chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoonful of flour
  • a speck of cayenne
  • salt
  • yolks of 3 eggs


Brown two tablespoonfuls of the butter, and add to it the parsley, cayenne and salt and the oysters, well drained.

Mix together the flour and the remainder of the butter and stir into the oysters when they begin to curl.

Then add yolks, well beaten, and take immediately from the fire.
