Darling, you got to let me know… should oyster or should I go?

Should I Stay Or Should I Go is a classic hit from The Clash. Released in 1981, it only reached number 17 in the UK charts. But, when they re-released it ten years later, it reached number 1. The song was re-released because it was featured in a popular commercial for Levi’s in 1991 – an ad that is still entertaining over 25 years <gulp> later.
It isn’t every writer that can segue seamlessly between The Clash and an oyster gratin – and luckily we really don’t have to. Are you a fan of The Clash? Are you fan of oysters? If you answered yes to both, try this recipe! And then if you answered no to liking oysters, give the dish to me – because it’s delish!
I’ve used ready-shucked oysters here, but if you’re shucking them yourself you could always cook them on the half shell – the dish would work just as well!
