Oysters in Garlic Butter

Oyster purists might argue that oysters don't require any condiments. True, but sometimes, adding a bit of a punch to the oyster is just what's needed. This garlic butter is subtle enough to bring the flavour of the oyster to its high. The oysters in garlic butter is a simple but great recipe to add something different.
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons minced parsley
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 24 oysters
  • coarse salt for baking sheet
  1. Preheat the broiler.
  2. Put the butter in a bowl. Press the garlic cloves over the butter and mix well. Add the parsley, season with salt and pepper to taste, and refrigerate. 
  3. Open the oysters and put them, in their shells, on a baking sheet filled with coarse salt. Add about 1⁄2 teaspoon of the parsley butter mixture to each oyster and broil for 1 to 2 minutes. 
  4. Serve the oysters in garlic butter immediately with rye bread.
