Garlic Butter Oysters


  • 24 oysters in shell
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons fresh bread crumbs

Shuck oysters and reserve deeper shells. Combine garlic and parsley. Place oysters in reserved shells in a bed of rock salt. Place ½ teaspoon garlic/parsley mix on top of each oyster. Place ½ teaspoon crumbs over each. Top each with ¼ teaspoon butter. Broil about 4-inches from heat source until oysters are done and crumbs are brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.
