Smoked Oysters...Suggestions?

I took home several cans of smoked Pacific N.W. oysters from Costco but they have languished in the cupboard for months. They have a good intense oyster flavour, but they are also very smoky.

Any suggestions to tame the smokiness?

  1. The only way we ever used these was to serve on crackers with slices of cheese (cheddar, jack...).

    Mmmmm, I haven't had that snack in years!

    1. I've made a dip using smoked oysters. Haven't made it in years, but I still have the recipe if you want it.

      1. Sliced baguette with a thin spread of mayo, topped with the oyster!

        1. I make a "hangtown" fry with them. Warm them in a skillet, push them aside scramble eggs, carefully mix them together and top with real crunchy bacon bits. This is a Sunday night dinner quite often for us.

          1. For a party type occasion, you could make little puff pastry cups and fill them with a "mousse"
            made from smoked oysters and cream cheese.

            For a more casual snack, I drain the oil, add lemon juice and tabasco, and put them on saltines. Thats one of my favorite things.
