The Old Fort Lauderdale Breakfast House has recently expanded its hours to include dinner service, and among the items on the new menu is a fantastic oyster pan roast. Chef Aaron Johnson was kind enough to expose his secrets and show us how to make his most popular appetizer.
Start by sautéeing some shallots and garlic in
butter. Johnson insists, "It's important to make sure they don't brown. The goal is to lightly soften them. Then add heavy cream and reduce." In order to allow it to thicken properly, it needs to be reduced by at least two-thirds over low heat.
