2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons finely chopped celery
2 green onions, chopped

1/2 cup chopped watercress leaves
1/4 cup fresh breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Pernod (optional) or anisette (optional)
salt & freshly ground black pepper
8 oysters, chucked, reserving any juice

Preheat oven to 400F.

In a skillet on medium-high heat, melt butter. When butter sizzles, add parsley, celery, green onions and garlic, cook for 2 minutes. Add watercress and cook for a further minute.

Place in food processor and pure with 2 tbsp (25 mL) breadcrumbs and Pernod. Season with salt and pepper.
