Smoked Oyster Appetizers


  • 1 tube Ritz crackers
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • Black pepper
  • 1 red onion — very thinly sliced (so you can see through them)
  • A ripe avocado — very thinly sliced
  • 1 can smoked oysters — well drained and drizzled with lemon juice
  • Coarse smoked salt


  1. Layer all ingredients in order, ending with the salt. Make lots, because they will disappear fast.
  2. Cut the cream cheese into ⅓ inch slices and then spread evenly onto the crackers. An 8 ounce package will be more than enough for one can of oysters, one avocado and one tube of crackers.
  3. The red onion should be sliced so thinly that you can see through it, and don’t be afraid to be generous with it; the other flavors keep it very mild tasting.
  4. Cut the avocado in half lengthwise, remove the pit and halve again lengthwise. Then slice it crosswise into ⅛ inch slices.
  5. Open the can of oysters, drain them on paper towel to remove as much oil as possible. Then drizzle with lemon juice and sprinkle with the smoked salt before placing onto the crackers.
