20 MIN


Hollandaise Sauce


  1. Preheat the oven’s broiler.
  2. In a skillet, sauté the garlic in the butter, without browning. Add the spinach. Continue cooking until the spinach has wilted. Spoon into a 28 x 18-cm (11 x 7-inch) baking dish, in scallop shells or in the oyster shells. Top with the oysters.

Hollandaise Sauce

  1. At the top of a double boiler, off the heat, whisk together the egg yolks, white wine, and lemon juice until frothy. Place over the simmering water. Cook, whisking constantly, just to warm up. Add the butter, one piece at a time, whisking constantly. Wait until the butter is melted before adding another piece. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in the hollandaise sauce. Cover the oysters with the sauce. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Broil in the oven until golden brown. Serve hot as an appetizer.


  1. I have made this recipe as is. And it lacks a certain finesse. Added pinch cayenne to hollandaise along with 1/4t smoked paprika. Still not sure about adding egg whites into mixture. Spinach mixture- increased garlic and added several shallots. Drained excess moisture. This makes it much more flavorful, however recipe as is a 3 stars.

  2. Can the rockerfeller oyster be prepared a d frozen ahead of time?
