1 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Pernod
2 Dashes Tabasco Sauce
2 dozen oysters, on the half shell
1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
2 tablespoon chopped parsley

2> In another pot bring the cream to a boil and reduce by about half. Careful the cream can boil over very easily. Add the Pernod and Tabasco and bring back to a boil. Remove from the heat.
3> Open the oysters. Make Sure they are fresh and smell good. If you buy the from a reputable fish merchant they will probably open them for you but use them that day or the day after. Now top each oyster with about 1 tablespoon of the cooked spinach, sprinkle each with about ½ Tablespoon of Panko, and spoon over 1 Tablespoon of the sauce. Now Sprinkle the top with the rest of the Panko and the Parmesan
