National Oysters Rockefeller Day is a holiday observed annually on January 10th to celebrate a dish that’s been enjoyed since the late 19th century and continues to be enjoyed to this day. Oyster Rockefeller is a dish that’s made of oysters served on the half-shell that’s topped with a butter sauce, green herbs such as parsley, and bread crumbs.
It’s then served with a lemon wedge as a garnish. Some variations on this dish include spinach as a shortcut to give the dish its bright green color-a trademark of this dish. No matter whether you make it with spinach or not, just be sure to make enough for your friends and family because they’re going to want some too once they see how delicious it looks.
