Cheese Baked Oysters


Cheese Baked Oysters

Both cooked and raw oysters are commonly consumed by people.  It’s just your preference whether you can tolerate raw shellfish.  It was very tempting everytime I saw my friends enjoying raw oysters.  Their faces tell you all – raw oysters are heavenly!  However, up to this moment, I still haven’t tried any yet.  I believe cooking kills bateria.  Here is one good recipe I found online and made some changes to it.  Opening an oyster is called shucking, and it takes some skill to do it.  You can easily find a tutorial on YouTube.

Ingredients:

4 ounces (1 stick)
2 tablespoons
½ teaspoon
Pinch
8 large
1/8 cup2 teaspoons
Softened Butter
Finely chopped garlic
Black pepper
Dried oregano
Freshly shucked oysters on the half shell
Grated Parmesan & Romano cheeses (mixed) or 4 Cheese Mexican
Chopped flat-leaf parsley (Optional)

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mix butter with garlic, pepper, and oregano.
  2. Spoon enough of the seasoned butter over the oysters.  Put oysters under a broiler, broil for 3 minutes and then sprinkle cheese on top, broil for another 1 or 2 minutes.
  3. The oysters are ready when they puff up and get curly on the sides.  Serve on the shells immediately.
