Grilled Oyster

Broiled Oysters with a Sriracha Lime Butter

Live on the wild side and try this Broiled Oysters with a Sriracha Lime Butter recipe. Although many love oysters raw, sometimes a grilled oyster is a nice change. These oysters are topped with a yummy spicy citrus butter that still allows the flavor of the oysters to come through.

According to Melissa V, who submitted this recipe to Food52.com, this recipe is so easy and the quick blast of heat concentrates the oysters’ brine and browns their tips without drying them out. Here you mash up butter with Sriracha, shallots, lime juice and cilantro and as the oysters cook the flavorful butter melts and poaches the plump little bivalves. Try this butter on clams, fish, shrimp, crab and even corn. Melissa V notes that the lime juice just will not mash into the butter, so just spoon the juices over the oysters after dabbing them with the butter.
