{Summer Recipe} Parmesan Grilled Oysters

Back in the day when we lived in New Orleans, my husband got to enjoy a lot of Grilled or Broiled Oysters. My favorite way to eat oysters in New Orleans were fried and on a poboy! How do you like your oysters?

Parmesan Grilled Oysters on the half shell

Ingredients

2 sticks of butter, room temp
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons chives or parsley or thyme
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
couple shakes of salt and pepper
1-2 dozen oysters, shucked and left in the half shell

Directions

1-Mix all the ingredients together, except oysters, until well combined.
2-Put in fridge until grill is ready.
3-Prepare gas or charcoal grill. When hot, equally dab butter mixture on each half shell. Then add each oyster to the grill - either on the grate or the coals.
4-Grill until the oysters start to bubble and curl up around the edges. The butter should be melted, too! Serve these babies as they come off the grill.

We live in Southern Illinois so this isn't a recipe I get to make. We sure miss our time in New Orleans and how easy it was to go into local restaurants and get just about any food we wanted full of butter and seafood! Yum. This butter mixture is good on anything seafood. Serve the oysters with french bread to get all of the juices.
