Oyster Festival Recipies

Do you remember going to your last oyster festival?

Do you remember the sounds, the smells, the pleasant aroma of the roasting oysters!


Now - how do they do it???

I am not a vendor, salesperson or representative of any organization with interest in ANY oyster festival.

What I do know - is how to serve the best grilled oysters:

Start with oysters harvested from the Chesapeake Bay.-

Next - shuck 2 dozen oysters and put aside for grilling for this evening.

Baste the oysters during grilling with this combination:

* 10 tablespoons softened unsalted butter
* 2 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
* 2 tablespoons minced parsley leaves
* 1 tablespoon lemon juice
* 2 teaspoons minced garlic
* 1 teaspoon minced fresh chives
* 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, optional
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
* 24 shucked oysters, half of each shell reserved and washed


In a bowl combine all ingredients except the oysters and mix thoroughly to combine.

Transfer butter mixture to a piece of plastic wrap and roll up to form a tight log and freeze until firm.

Preheat a grill to high.

Place the washed oyster shells on a baking sheet and top each shell with 1 oyster.

Remove the butter from the freezer and unwrap.

Slice the butter into 24 rounds and place 1 round on top of each oyster.

Place the oysters on the preheated grill and cook until the oysters are just cooked through, curled around the edges and the butter is melted and bubbly, 4 to 6 minutes.

Serve immediately.
