Grilled Oysters.

Last month I enjoyed some amazing raw oysters on the east coast. Tonight, we enjoyed some amazing grilled oysters (and littleneck clams) from the east coast, right here at home.

  • a dozen fresh oysters, in half shells
  • 3 T olive oil
  • 3 T butter
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • sea salt
Heat olive oil and add butter, stirring until melted. Add parsley, lemon juice & salt.  Set oysters directly on heated grill, or place in a shallow pan filled with pebbles, rock salt, or rice (to prevent oysters from tipping), and place pan on grill.  Spoon a teaspoonful of oil & butter mixture over each oyster.  Grill 5-6 minutes, or until oysters start to curl slightly.  Enjoy with a squeeze of lemon juice or hot sauce...or just as they are.

This recipe works well with clams, too.  Cooking time is slightly less.  So good...
