Easy version of Oyster Rockefeller * Oyster Day

History of Oysters Rockefeller
There is much ado over the original recipe for Oysters Rockefeller. We do know that is was invented by Jules Alciatore, the second-generation proprietor of Antoine's restaurant in New Orleans. We don't know, however, what exactly went into the original dish—just that there was a wealth of bright green herbs and it was rich, like John D. Rockefeller himself.

If you can't go to the famous restaurant  to have the original recipe. . Here's an easy version of the recipe : 

3 dozen fresh oysters ( washed/ open & save bottom shell for serving)
1 onion finely chopped
1/2 C Butter   cubed
1 pkg fresh spinach torn 
1 C Romano cheese  (grated)
1 T lemon juice
1/8 t   peper

Kosher Salt to hold oysters.

* The original recipe has many variations :  like adding  1/2 teaspoon Herbsaint or Pernod**, made with watercress  ,fennel  and parsley. .
