All of us have these vivid recollections of family gatherings that include customs around food. Among my favourites contains my late grandma “Edie”; at any family get together she came with raw oysters as well as a sleeve of saltine crackers. Each household member will be supported (anticipated) to get one, also the great grandchildren. On the day of her funeral, all of US observed her existence having a wine toast pursued by an oyster. My kids never met with their great grandmother, but we desire to maintain stories and custom alive. Therefore if we we get the oysters away we tell stories about great-grandmother Edie. Our ladies may consume anything-but as the adage “Life is most brilliant, where food is greatest” says, we recall great-grandmother with this particular delightful oyster menu below.

Broiled Oysters with Flavored Butter


Butter that is flavored

10 tablespoons melted butter

2 tbs Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp orange juice

2 teaspoons fresh rosemary

2 tbs finely sliced fresh parsley

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Half every shell cleaned and allowed, 2 4 oysters.


1. In a pan combine all ingredients in the above list for the flavored butter and blend thoroughly to join. Transfer butter mixture into a bit of plastic wrap and roll-up to to make a a good 3″ loaf of bread.

2. Serve promptly.

3. Grill for about 5-6 minutes. You are going to understand they’re done when the juices begin to the edges snuggle as well as vapor.

4. Put the oysters that are ready straight.

5. Take away in the freezer. Cut the the butter into 1/4 inch pieces and put a piece on the top of every oyster.

6. I suggest making these on a Weber Kettle to enrich the flavor.
