Steamed Oysters with Black Beans and Garlic SauceOysters are known to lower cholesterol and strengthen the immune system. To get the maximum benefit, instead of roasting or deep frying them, go for a steamed recipe. That's what we've done in the following delicious preparation. Boiled black beans are also added in this recipe that adds more nutritional value to this recipe. And, we all know how good garlic for heart is. Its sauce is included to complete this healthy, tasty and irresistible main course meal. You can use the same ingredients to make steamed red snapper too. My family members prefer this recipe as a starter though I love to eat them with rice. Always prepare and serve these oysters fresh as the refrigerated version tends to get bit bland.
