Smoky Oysters

Though the shellfish is broiled, it has the sweet-smoky flavor associated with outdoor grilling. Use leftover sauce as a glaze for grilled fish, meat, or vegetables.

  • Yield: Makes 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 2 cups coarse rock salt
  • 4 large oysters
  • 1/4 cup BBQ Relish

Preparation

Pour rock salt into an ovenproof skillet. Shuck oysters, leaving meat in bottom shell. Place shells on the salt. Spoon 1 tablespoon BBQ Relish on top of each oyster.
