This is concoction was developed by my buddy and I during a block party. We had people standing in line. Be sure to use leather gloves when shucking hot oysters. Sounds like a pain, but well worth the work.

  • Preheat a grill for high heat.

  • Place whole oysters on the hot grill for 3 to 5 minutes, or until almost done. Remove the top shell from the oysters, without spilling any liqueur, and return them to the grill. Slice the butter log into 1/4 inch slices, and place a slice on top of each oyster. Grill until the butter melts, then serve on a bed of rock salt for presentation.

Great for Oysters. Maybe a little too much garlic and in general I think the recipe makes too much butter for the amount of shellfish. The flavor is good but I tried it on clams too and was not a fan. Probably more because clams taste too fishy too me. Read More

Very very good! Probably the best Oyster recipe out there. Try the butter on clams and mussels as well! Read More

These are REALLY delicious. I mourn not living in an area where I can get fresh oysters but it still worked out very well minus the extra work to open the oysters that wouldn't open on their own. HIGHLY recommended. Read More

Great Recipe! I celebrated my father's birthday with a seafood night and the butter was a hit! Hits the spot with steamed/grilled shrimp oysters and crab meat! Will definitely use this recipe again. Read More

This is an awesome recipe although if you are making a dozen oysters cut the butter sauce in half and you will still have some left over. Speaking of which....I used my left over sriracha butter to put over salmon a couple nights later and it was absolutely killer. Read More

I made a version of this for a tailgate party at a football game. I didnt add the Sriracha sauce merely because I was trying to make the butter with ingredients I had on hand. I also used red onion instead of shallot. It was awesome and definitely a hit. Next time I will make this with the chili of some kind and maybe a pinch of grated Havarti on top of the oyster. I will make again. Read More
