Galway Oyster Broth with Dill and Tomato

Even if you can’t find oysters in the shell and have to settle for fresh-shucked, this soup is an elegant, delicious first course.


1 quart fish stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 oysters, shucked, liquor reserved
2 tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and diced
1 tablespoon finely chopped dill
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


In a 2-quart saucepan, over high heat, reduce fish stock by half. When reduced, add the cream and oyster liquor. Add tomato, dill, and oysters. Simmer for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
