Serves 4



  • 1 dozen fresh oysters in the shell
  • 8 oz. butter, room temperature

  • 1 tbsp. fresh thyme, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt to taste

  2. Preheat grill to high.
  3. Shuck the oysters with a shucking knife, using a shucking glove or other type of hand protection. Take care to keep the liquid inside intact, as it adds to the flavor of the oyster.

  5. Cover the grill and let cook another 3-4 minutes.
  6. Remove oysters carefully with tongs, placing onto a larger platter – enjoy!
