1 1/4 cups water
3 dozen small to medium oysters, in their liquor
1 stick butter, unsalted
1 cup celery, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon Chef Paul Prudhomme's Seafood Magic
1/2 cup green onions, finely chopped
2 cups heavy cream

Add the water to the oysters and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Strain and reserve the oysters and oyster water; refrigerate until ready to use.
In a large skillet combine the butter, celery, Seafood Magic and 3/4 cup of the oyster water. Cook over high heat for 3 minutes, shaking pan (verses stirring) almost constantly.
Add the remaining 1/2 cup oyster water and continue cooking and shaking the pan for 1 minute. Stir in the green onions.
Gradually add the cream, whisking constantly. Add the oysters and cook just until the edges curl, about 2 to 4 minutes, whisking constantly. Remove from heat and serve immediately, stirring well as you ladle out the portions.
For the main course, ladle 9 oysters, a little of the vegetables and 1 cup of the liquid into each serving bowl. For appetizer, serve 1/2 of that amount.

Tuna steaks are great on the grill. Even if your kids say they don't like them, they might surprise themselves! And the fruit salsa tops them off deliciously. Mix and match the fruit according to what is fresh and in season.
