  • 1 quart half-and-half cream
  • 2 (12 ounce) containers fresh shucked oysters, undrained
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the celery and shallots until shallots are tender.
  2. Pour half-and-half into a large pot over medium-high heat. Mix in the butter, celery, and shallot mixture. Stir continuously.
