Yes, it’s time for my post. The girls have called me out and it’s time to show them up.
I LOVE oysters. In fact, I was in a slight panic when I thought I wouldn’t be able to buy a bag of 50 x-small sweetwaters Saturday. But everything is all good… I came home from a crappy day at work, turned on my kitchen TV, shucked some oysters over the sink, had a cold glass of wine, got the food giggles and all is OK with the world again.
Of course, I couldn’t just do one kind of oysters right? On Saturday we went to the Marshall Store and ordered some BBQed oysters. Now normally I think a cooked oyster is a wasted oyster, but these definitly changed my mind and even Lisa loved them. So I recreate the recipe as much as I can.
Normally BBQed oysters are cooked until they open but by then they are rubbery and a little fishy tasting. These are shucked first then topped with the sauces and finally broiled just until they are slightly cooked. A little bit more work but so worth it.
1 dozen fresh oysters shucked
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tbl of chopped parsley
1 tbl of butter
juice of half of a lemon
1 tbl of cocktail sauce
1) combine garlic with butter and cook the mixture in the microwave until it melts and you can smell the garlic
2) mix in the lemon juice and parsley and spoon over shucked oysters
3) add a little dab of cocktail over the oysters. This is what mine looked like
I also made some deep fried oysters by dredging them in just flour, deep frying them in vegtable oil and topped it off with a remoulade sauce. Awesome…
