Grilling oysters over high heat saves you the trouble of shucking them first, since the intense heat forces the shells open on their own.

How to Make It

Step 1

Scrub oysters under running water; discard any that are open and do not close within a few seconds.

Step 2

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, and loosen meat from bottom shell.

Step 3

Place on a serving tray, and serve immediately with hot sauce, Champagne Mignonette, and Basil-Garlic Butter Sauce.
