The Oyster Bed Charbroiled Oysters
With warmer weather setting in, what better way to kick off outdoor parties than with a little grilling? One of our absolute tride-and-true favorites is, of course, an Oyster Bed full of the traditional yummy goodness of charbroiled oysters.
PREP-TIME: 20 minutes COOK TIME: 10 minutes
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
5 TBSP Minced Garlic
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
3 TBSP Chopped Parsley
1 Cup Butter, softened
3 Dozen Pre-Shucked Oysters
2/3 Cup Finely Grated Parmesan Cheese
2/3 Cup Finely Grated Romano Cheese
Lots of French Bread!
Warm olive oil in saucepan over low heat. Add minced garlic, black pepper, Italian seasoning, and chopped parsley until well-incorporated. Pour mixture over softened butter and mix well. Add oyster meat to the Oyster Bed cooking wells and place on grill over high heat. While cooking, spoon butter mixture over each oyster.
Once butter mix is gathering in cooking well, use a long-handled spoon to re-baste each oyster. Combine cheeses and distribute liberally over each oyster. Excess butter can be reserved for sauce or used to create flames for additional smoke flavor. Make sure to save enough in the reserve well for dipping! Cook until cheese reaches desired brownness while re-basting to build flavor.
Serve with French bread, eat, and repeat!
