Roasted Oysters with Garlic Butter

Roasted Oysters with Garlic Butter


(Makes 12 oysters)

  • 12 fresh oysters

  • Coarse salt

  • Garlic Butter:

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

  • 1 large garlic clove, grated

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • Salt and pepper

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper

  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  2. Spread a 1/4-inch coating of coarse salt on a baking sheet (this will keep the oysters from tipping over).

  3. Place the oysters in the baking sheet, nestling them into the salt.

  4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the oysters begin to open.

  5. Remove from the oven and pry off the top shell of each oyster.

  6. Place them on a serving dish.

  7. Combine the garlic butter ingredients and spoon some over each of the oysters.

  8. Serve.
