Name: Grilled Oysters
Description: Grilled Oyster on the half shell.
Ingredients: OysterButter
Sal Pepper
Parmazan Cheese
Chopped Green Onion
Directions: New Orleans Grilled Oysters Oysters can be cooked in their shells on your barbecue grill. The heat from the grill steams the oysters. They make a great appetizer. So easy and so delicious, a local New Orleans tradition. 6 fresh oysters in the shell per person Basting sauce made from: About one stick melted butter, chopped fresh galic to taste, salt and pepper to taste, for each 6 oyster batch. Preheat barbecue grill. Or use a toaster oven set high. Scrub the oyster shells under cold running water with a brush. Open, discard top shell and losen oyster from bottom shell. Place about a table spoon of the flavored melted butter over each oyster. Place oysters (cup side on bottom) on hot grill about 4 inches from hot coals. Cover barbecue with lid, open any vents, and cook 3 to 5 minutes (depending on size) or until done to your taste. Using a oven mit, remove the oysters from the grill, taking care not to spill their juices. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese and chopped green onion on top of hot oysters. Transfer onto a serving platter. Serve with left over melted butter, your favorite hot sauce, and lemon wedges. Submitted by 'Oyster Boy' of New Orleans.
