I love these…I can never get enough. Lots of you are probably going ew…well that maybe…but oysters are a man’s best friend, and a woman’s best friend. For men, it’s vital to get zinc. Zinc is required for a healthy prostate…which does help in bed in numberous ways…which I will not go into. For women, if your man is having a little trouble. Oysters are an aphrodisiac. These are just so good reguardless why you eat them.
Grilled or raw oysters with citrus lime butter sauce
1 cup butter, softened
4 teaspoon Sriracha
8 teaspoons Shallots finely minced
2 tablespoon Lime juice
2 tablespoon Orange juice
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 teaspoons minced cilantro
4 dozen oysters on the half shell
Mix the butter with the shallots, sriracha, lime, orange, salt, and cilantro. Let set up in the fridge. It doesn’t have to set up completely but it should be more solid than liquid. If you want to eat them raw, melt this in the microwave until liquidy and just add a tablespoon full on the oysters. If you want to grill them continue below.
Meanwhile, heat the grill (or broiler) until very hot. Toss each oyster with a dollop of butter. Grill (or broil) for 3-4 minutes. I know I shouldn’t have to say this but….THE SHELLS ARE HOT! BE CAREFUL!
Yes 4 dozen oysters…mmm bet you can’t stop at 1, and don’t knock it till you try it!
