Spinach & Andouille Oysters

Makes 24


  • 9 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • ¼ pound fresh andouille sausage
  • ½ tsp Slap Ya Mama HOT Cajun Seasoning 
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ½ cup panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
  • 24 oysters on ½ the shell

  • Preheat oven to broil. Position oven rack 6 inches from broiler. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  • Bring a large dutch oven with salted water to a boil. Add spinach; cook, stirring constantly, just until wilted, about 1 minute. Drain; press to remove excess moisture. Set aside.
  • In a medium skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of butter over medium heat. Add onion and celery; cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Add Slap Ya Mama HOT Cajun Seasoning; cook stirring frequently, until brown and crumbly, about 15 minutes.
  • Add garlic; cook for 2 minutes. Add wine, and scrape any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Continue cooking until wine reduces, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and salt; cook until liquid is almost evaporated, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in bread crumbs and remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  • Arrange oysters on a prepared pan top each oyster with about 1 tablespoon sausage mixture.
  • Broil until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Serve with Slap Ya Mama Green Pepper Sauce
