Ingredients

  • 1 dozen small oysters in the shell
  • ½ cup bacon blue cheese compound butter

Instructions

  • Light a charcoal fire or preheat your gas grill on high. Oil the grill’s cooking surface. Let the coals burn down to a medium-hot fire or adjust the gas grill burners to medium.
  • Place oysters, whole in shell, on hot grill and cook for about 5 minutes, until shells begin to bubble and steam and slightly pop open.
  • Loosen oysters from their half shell for easier eating but keep them in the shells. Using gloves or a towel to insulate hands, remove an oyster shell from grill, and while holding in gloved hand, place shucking blade into crack opening and twist to open the shell. Pull open shell, and run blade on top of connecting muscle to release oyster from the top half of shell. Reserve as much of the internal juices as you can, and place half shell back on grill. Repeat with remaining oysters.
  • Top with Bacon Blue Cheese Compound butter and allow to continue cooking until butter is sizzling and blue cheese is soft.
  • Remove the oysters to a platter and serve with lemon wedges, if desired. Or, eat straight off the grill!

Notes

Optional, leave a dollop of butter and a fresh spinach leaf under each oyster after it’s been loosened from the shell. Then, top with more Bacon Blue Cheese Butter and crumbled bacon and blue cheese before finishing on the grill. Alternately, oysters can be cooked in an oven instead of a grill. Shuck whole fresh oysters as instructed above and place on bare or rock salt lined baking sheet. Then top with Bacon Blue Cheese Compound Butter and bake in a 450 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
