Wild Salmon & Black Bean Burgers Recipe

Get your grill on with our easy grilled oysters recipe - don't forget the crusty bread to mop up all the delicious garlic parsley butter! You'll make a little extra garlic parley butter - also called a compound butter - than you need, but it keeps well in the refrigerator or freezer and make the best garlic bread. Don't have a grill? Don't worry! Our recipe works for broiled oysters too.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
  •  ½ cup parsley, leaves only, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 dozen Blue Point oysters

DIRECTIONS

  1. Make the garlic-parsley butter: place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. Preheat your grill. You can either shuck your oysters before grilling, or grill them for 1 minute to slightly open the oyster, then shuck them and continue grilling
  3. For shucked oysters: place the oysters directly on the grill or on a baking sheet or cast iron pan layered with rock salt to keep them stable. Place 2 teaspoons of garlic parsley butter on each oyster, then cover the grill and cook for about 3 minutes, until the liquid is bubbling. Carefully remove the oysters and place on a seaweed or rock salt lined platter
  4. For unshucked oysters: place the oysters directly on the grill or on a baking sheet or cast iron pan layered with rock salt to keep them stable. Cover the grill and cook for 1 minute to slightly open them. Carefully remove, and wearing oven mitts, shuck the oysters, keeping as much oyster liquor as possible. Place 2 teaspoons of garlic parsley butter on each oyster, then place back on the baking sheet or cast iron pan, cover the grill and cook for 3 minutes. Carefully remove the oysters and place on a seaweed or rock salt lined platter.
  5. For broiled oysters: place an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler. Preheat broiler. Place the oysters directly on a baking sheet or cast iron pan layered with rock salt to keep them stable. Place 2 teaspoons of garlic parsley butter on each oyster, then place back on the baking sheet or cast iron pan, cover the grill and cook for 3 minutes, until the liquid is bubbling. Carefully remove the oysters and serve.
