Oysters in the Half Shell

I have never tasted Oysters like this before. I wonder if it was the paprika? Try this recipie.


36 live Oysters
Salt and Pepper, to taste
1/2 cup Bread Crumbs
2 Tbsp Butter
pinch of Paprika
fresh Parsley, finely chopped
Cocktail Sauce
3 Lemons, cut into thin wedges


Shuck and clean oysters, retaining the larger half of shell with oysters. Melt butter in sauté pan. Reduce heat and add bread crumbs to butter and mix well. Place oysters in shells and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover each oyster with buttered bread crumbs and add a dash of paprika on top. Place shells with oysters in oven about 3 inches down from broiler. Broil for 5 minutes until golden brown. Sprinkle each oyster with a pinch of parsley. Serve with lemon wedges and cocktail sauce.
