12 Fresh Shucked Oysters, On the Half Shell
1/2 lb Unsalted Butter
1 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 bunch Green Onion, Finely Chopped
10 Garlic Cloves, Pureed
1/2 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 1/2 Tbsp Fresh Thyme, Finley Chopped
1 1/2 Tbsp Fresh Oregano, Finley Chopped
1 Tbsp Creole Seasoning
1 oz White Wine
1/2 C Grated Romano Cheese
- Melt half the butter in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add your lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, green onions and all herbs and seasonings. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then stir in wine. Keep stirring and remove from heat as soon as the green onions wilt. Let cool for 3-4 minutes. Add the rest of the butter and stir until completely incorporated.
- Heat grill to 350°F Place oysters directly on grill, the shell will act as a pan. When the oyster liquor starts to bubble, spoon 1 tablespoon of sauce on top of each, then top with 1 tablespoon of Romano cheese. Let the cheese melt. When oysters begin to slightly brown at the edges, remove from grill and place on a heat proof plate or tray.
- Top each oyster with an additional tablespoon of the butter sauce and serve immediately with slices of French bread for dipping.
