Oysters for Grilling
3 dz larger oysters (3" - 3.5"), plus oyster grilling butter.
Growing up on Hood Canal we ate lots of oysters, and they were almost always roasted on a campfire. At some point in the evening at a family gathering a pickup truck full of uncles would head down to the beach to catch the low tide and come back with a five gallon bucket of oysters, which they'd roast open on the campfire and serve with melted garlic butter and tabasco.
Since those days we've picked up a few tips from our friends... this package comes with 6 oz of chipotle bourbon butter (hats off to Hog Island Oyster Company)... but the gist remains the same: grilled oysters are amazing.
We recommend taking the top shells off these oysters, adding a teaspoon of butter / cheese / etc, and cooking them over a fire, on a grill, or in an oven. Find lots of hot tips for grilling oysters here. Try them with pimento cheese, or horseradish cheddar, or Renee Erickson's "snail butter" (from this cookbook).
