Author Notes: I love oysters, raw, grilled, broiled or baked. I especially love them lathered in butter, herby butter, like in this recipe. —eatboutique
Serves: 6, as a starter
stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
garlic cloves, finely chopped
tablespoons basil, finely chopped
tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
dash smoked paprika
teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
lemon wedges, for serving
- Set your oven to broil with the top track 6-8 inches away from the flame.
- Shuck the oysters and place them in a large casserole dish.
- Mush the butter with the garlic, basil, parsley, paprika, salt and black pepper. Divide the butter evenly among the raw oysters by dropping 1 teaspoon on top of each oyster.
- Place the dish in the oven and broil for 5 minutes, or until the butter mixture melts and bubbles and browns a bit.
- Set the hot dish (with a warning!) between your guests immediately, along with lemon wedges.
