How to Make Grilled Oysters
- Combine the butter, minced shallot, garlic, sausage and cheese together. it can be chilled or left at room temp if you plan to use soon.
- place the shucked oysters on the grill. I start with my grill at high, with a "cool zone" to one side. My grill will hit 700 degrees in a few minutes, so times and temps will vary. I grill on high till the juices start to boil, let the oysters cook for a minute, really big ones, give them 2.
- add a bit of the cheese mixture on top of each oyster, and lower the temp. burned parm smells awful :). Let the cheese brown a bit on top, when it does, you're done.
- serve. I've done similar oysters on a bed of rock salt, it retains the heat and looks nice. Keep in mind, the shell will keep the oyster very hot, so be careful not to burn those fingers.
