Directions:
Warm the vermouth in a saucepan over medium heat and poach the oysters in it for about eight minutes--until the oysters curl at the edges. Remove from fire and strain out oysters. Reserve on the side. In the liquid, soak French bread cubes; when cool, mash up with your hands. In a skillet, melt the butter and saute the onion, green onion, garlic, thyme, cayenne, and bay leaf until the onions turn translucent. Add the cooked oysters and the parsley to the pan and simmer for three to five minutes. Remove from fire and stir into the bread mixture. Mix in the chopped pecans and evenly distribute. The mixture should be fairly loose and wet; tighten it up to a stiff mixture with the seasoned bread crumbs.
