Ingredients

  • 18 oysters freshly shucked (on the half shell)
  • 2 sticks salted butter
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped fine
  • 5 cloves fresh garlic pureed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoons fresh thyme chopped fine
  • ½ teaspoons fresh oregano chopped fine
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoons Creole seasoning
  • 1 ounce white wine
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat a grill to 350 degrees.
  • In a large sauce pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add green onions, garlic, red pepper, thyme, oregano, lemon juice Worcestershire, and Creole seasoning. Sauté butter mixture for two minutes. Add white wine.
  • Stir ingredients continuously and continue to sauté until green onions are soft. Remove saucepan from the heat and allow to cool for three mintues.
  • Place shucked oysters on the half shell on the center of the grill. Grill until the brine around the oyster begins to bubble and the oyster begins to rise, about 5-7 minutes.
