Grilled Oysters with Cajun Infused Garlic Butter

Ingredients:

  • 12 Humboldt Bay Oysters
  • Humboldt Hotsauce Cajun Dry Rub
  • 12 cloves of garlic
  • 3 teaspoons grated parmesan
  • 4 oz unsalted butter
  • Zest of 1 half lemon

Oyster Instructions:

Carefully shuck 12 oysters, making sure not to spill the oyster elixir, and sweeping the foot off the bottom of the shell.

If you have never shucked an oyster, here are a few tips: Use a towel (or special mesh glove) to hold the oyster and then using the knife in your dominant hand, work the knife into the hinge. This part will take some practice but look for a spot that you can get some leverage. Don’t shove the knife in - wiggle it around a bit until you find that spot. Once it’s in place, twist and rotate the knife to pry the oyster open. Clean your knife, then sever the muscle that acts like a tie between the top and bottom shells and discard the top shell. Without tipping the oyster (you will lose all the elixer!) slide your knife under the oyster to sever the muscle from the bottom shell. This ensures that it slides into your mouth when your tip it back.

Cooking Instructions:

Get your coals going outside for cooking the oysters!

On the stove, melt the butter. Place butter into a small saucepan. Turn the heat on to medium-low and let the butter melt slowly. If you melt the butter over high heat, it may splatter and burn easily. Sauté the garlic. Peel garlic and crush it by pressing down firmly on it with the flat blade of a knife. Drop the crushed garlic into the melted butter and let it cook for a minute or two over medium-low heat. Stir in the Cajun mix, parmesan, and lemon zest. Keep on low heat.

Cook oysters over charcoal (or gas if you prefer) until elixir begins to bubble. Add Cajun infused garlic butter, a fresh squeeze of lemon, and a dash of Humboldt Hotsauce before slurping!
