Char Broiled Oysters

Recipe from: Drago's

Drago's heats things up in New Orleans, serving char broiled oysters right off the back of its fire truck!

Watch the episode
2 pounds butter, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh garlic
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 dozen oysters on the half shell
1 cup grated Parmesan and Romano cheeses, mixed
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Mix butter with the garlic, pepper, and oregano.

Heat a gas or charcoal grill and put oysters on the half shell right over the hottest part. Spoon the seasoned butter over the oysters enough so that some of it will overflow into the fire and flame up a bit.

The oysters are ready when they puff up and get curly on the sides. Sprinkle the grated Parmesan and Romano and the parsley on top. Serve on the shells immediately with hot French bread.

Yield: 8-12 servings
