Garlic Oysters - A Classic Oyster Snack
Oysters are a sort out sea food dish. Garlic Oysters are a classic snack and appetizer that will add some spice into your family dinners and a party favourite. They are also easy to make.
- 12 Oysters fresh oysters opened before use
- 2 tbsp garlic fine chop
- 4 ounces butter
- 1 tsp Italian Parsley fine chop
- ¼ tsp granulated onion
- ⅛ tsp black pepper
- 1 tbsp Romano cheese grated
- Gather the ingredient you need. You can add your favorite seasoning and make these delicious mollusks just how you like them.
- Before opening the oysters place them in a bowl and allow cold water to tun over them for about 5 minutes as you gently toss the oysters in the bowl. Dump the water out every now and then to make sure it is as clean as possible. When water starts running clear you're good to go.
- You can use a Flat head screw driver to open the oysters. Lay the oyster flat in your hand and hold it in place. Insert the tip of the screwdriver into the "hinge" at the back of the oysters and rotate the handle to pry open the oyster. Yo'll need a pairing knife to cut the muscle away from the shell by sliding the knife horizontally along the inside top of the shell.
- In a heavy saucepan, place butter and garlic and simmer over low heat for 7-10 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and add all the seasonings except the Romano cheese.
- Place garlic butter into a small bowl and refrigerate until butter is semi-solid, mixing occasionally to keep the garlic well-blended throughout the mixture.
- Place the opened oysters on a cutting board or baking sheet until they're all open and ready to fill with the garlic butter.
- Spoon a small amount of the garlic butter over each oyster on a half shell, then sprinkle with Romano cheese.
- Place Oysters on a baking sheet, then into a preheated 400-degree oven for 15-20 minutes or under the broiler for 3-5 minutes.
- Place any of the butter that has drained from the oysters back over them before serving.
- Serve and enjoy!
