The briny flavors of the oysters are further enhanced with the super-savory compound butter used in this recipe. Throwing the element of smokiness from the grill, and you’ve got yourself a little bite of heaven. Oysters are incredibly quick cooking, so allowing them to warm gently as the butter melts over the meat is the way to go.

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to high (450°F to 500°F). Stir together butter, parsley, horseradish, garlic, Worcestershire, zest, salt, paprika, and hot sauce in a bowl until well blended. Place about 2 teaspoons butter mixture in each oyster. Arrange oysters in a single layer on oiled grates, keeping oysters as level as possible. Grill, uncovered, until butter is completely melted and just starting to bubble, about 7 minutes.
