Grilled oysters

Prep 5 min
Plus Grilling Time: 5 minutes
Makes 8 Servings





Tabasco sauce, preferably chipotle
lemon, cut into wedges
Finely chopped parsley


  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Scrub oysters clean. Place oysters flat-side up on grill. Cover and barbecue until shells begin to open, 2 to 6 min. Remove each to a platter as it is done. When cool enough to handle, gently slip a small, sharp knife between the shells and slice to release oyster from the top shell. Remove the top shell, taking care not to pour out the juices. Top each with a dash of Tabasco, a squeeze of lemon and a pinch of chopped fresh parsley.

Kitchen Tip:

When serving oysters, pour a thick layer of kosher salt over a platter to make a secure bed for them to sit in.
