How to adapt shucked oysters for a recipe that calls for them on the half-shell
My parents were generous enough to bring back a pound of Apalachicola oysters for me from Florida. My challenge is that they are already shucked. I don't want to throw them in a casserole or stew, where they wouldn't be the spotlight. I'd love to make Oysters Rockefeller or Grilled Oysters with Sriracha Lime Butter but not sure if they'll work. I do have scallop shells that are food safe. Will the oysters get too dry without their juice? Thanks for any advice.

And use those for Rockefeller with precooked oysters.
Something to think of next time you have fresh oysters.
Also, Pier One will sell scallop shells--which is what I used to use, but I see you already have those. Just put a bit of the juice in them.
