The Niners are going to the Super Bowl! If you’re planning a Super Bowl menu, you must include an ice chest full of big, beautiful BBQ oysters. If you don’t…just stay home and watch the Lifetime Movie Network.
BBQed Oysters with Cheese Topping and Garlic Finishing
Cheese Topping:
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
2 lemons, zested and juiced
1 bunch Italian parsley, chopped
Garlic Finishing Butter:
1 stick butter
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup Louisiana hot sauce. I like Crystal or Frank’s hot sauce
1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped garlic
2 tablespoons granulated garlic
24 oysters, shucked on the half shell
1 loaf Italian bread, sliced and charred on the grill, for sopping
For the cheese topping: Mix the Parmesan, mozzarella, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest and parsley in a bowl and set aside.
For the finishing butter: Place the butter, lemon juice, hot sauce, Worcestershire, chopped garlic, granulated garlic and 1/2 cup water into a small pot on the stove. Slowly melt and whisk until blended.
Preheat your grill to 400 or build a good hot fire.
Top each oyster with a good amount of the cheese mixture. Place the oysters on the grill. Cook until the cheese is melted and the oysters are starting to get some color and curl up on the edges, 10 minutes or so.
Remove the oysters from the grill with tongs and place them onto a sheet pan or large platter.
Ladle some melted garlic butter over the oysters.
Serve with grilled bread to sop up the juices and butter!
