Dave’s Oysters Rockefeller (It’s a natural little blue pill)

Happy Valentine’s Day! Number two on the Zagat list of most popular Valentine’s cuisine is French, but we don’t do French. So on to number three…seafood.
Dave’s Oysters Rockefeller (It’s a natural little blue pill)
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tsp Christopher Ranch jarred minced garlic
1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
2 shallots, chopped
2 cups chopped fresh spinach
1/4 cup white wine
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
A couple of dashes of pepper sauce, like Pick-A-Peppa or Siracha
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
2 dozen oysters, on the half shell
Rock salt
Lemon wedges & Hot sauce, for serving. I like Crystal hot sauce.
In a medium skillet, melt butter. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute, then remove from heat.
Place the bread crumbs in a mixing bowl and add half the garlic butter, set aside.
To the remaining garlic butter in the skillet, add shallots and spinach, cook for 3 minutes until the spinach wilts. De-glaze the pan with white wine. Season with salt and pepper, add a couple of dashes of pepper sauce. Allow the mixture to cook down for a few minutes.
Finish off the bread crumbs by mixing in olive oil, Parmesan and parsley, & season with salt and pepper.
Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of the spinach mixture on each oyster followed by a spoonful of the bread crumb mixture. Sprinkle a baking pan amply with rock salt. Arrange the oysters in the salt to steady them. Bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes until golden.
Serve with lemon wedges and hot sauce.
