Today, I bring to you a great recipe that I developed a few weeks ago, Grilled Oysters with Bacon and Parmesan Cheese. I purchased the oysters and had the lids removed at my local fish and food market, Carolina Fish Market. You can find all of the ingredients for this dish at this market.
You start by heating the grill or oven to 400 degrees. Top each raw oyster (One dozen raw oysters without lids, but not shucked) with melted butter, shredded Parmesan cheese and crisp bacon crumbles. (If you cannot get your oysters shucked, you can place them on a hot grill and just when they open, remove and continue following the recipe above with the toppings...just be sure to place back on grill to melt and brown cheese...this may take only 2 minutes...do not overcook or your oysters will be tough...see picture below for how to open oysters on grill).
Place on hot grill and cover with grill lid Grill for about 4 to 6 minutes or until you notice the cheese melt and turn brown. Remove from grill onto a serving platter. I chose this wood, food safe platter from Home Goods. Garnish with fresh parsley and freshly squeezed lemon juice. Be sure to serve it immediately and enjoy!
