Recipe from Coastal Living

More From Coastal Living


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 24 oysters
  • 2 large lemons, cut into wedges


  1. Stir together first 4 ingredients. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  2. Scrub oysters under running water; discard any that are open and do not close within a few seconds. Grill oysters over high heat (400° to 500°) about 5 minutes, until shells open slightly. Pry off top shell, using oven mitts to protect hands from hot shells and liquid. Discard top shell; loosen meat from bottom shell. Top each oyster with 1/2 tablespoon butter mixture. Return oysters to grill; cook until butter melts and liquid bubbles. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.
