A part-time neighbor who lives in Louisiana brought us oysters this morning!! Hubby started shucking them and eating them raw and shucking some and putting on a cookie sheet on the half-shell for me to prepare to broil. I have baked them before but had never broiled them. They were good!! I made a paste of the ingredients listed below, put a little dollop on each oyster, preheated the broiler and placed the pan on the highest rack until the edges curled and the oyster was done to my liking (about 4 minutes). The buttery juice in the shell is good, too. I’m planning to make oyster stew tomorrow.
softened butter Worcestershire sauce
finely chopped parsley ground red pepper
finely grated parmesan hot sauce salt to taste
