This year’s oyster selection:

Blue Point ~ An exceptional Atlantic oyster from Long Island with a crisp texture, gorgeous salinity and hints of celery.

Malaspina ~ a sweet,  mild Pacific oyster from British Columbia with a distinct watermelon-rind aroma and creamy-white flesh.

Luna ~ a Pacific oyster with delicate meats from Southern California with flavors of crisp melon and a salty cold finish.

In a small pot, melt butter and add a good squeeze of Sriracha hot sauce. Whisk together. Keep pot hot on the corner of the grill.

From Huy Fong Foods, Inc.:

“Sriracha is made from sun ripen chilies which are ground into a smooth paste along with garlic and packaged in a convenient squeeze bottle. It is excellent in soups, sauces, pastas, pizzas, hot dogs, hamburgers, chow mein or on anything else to give it a delicious, spicy taste.”

We respectfully add oysters to their list.

Place the oysters on a hot grill, keeping in mind that the smaller ones will cook quicker. In a minute or two you’ll hear a pop and a sizzle. Shuck the oysters once they begin to open, carefully, as they are hot. Keep them level so as not to spill the precious oyster liquor. Ladle a small amount of Sriracha butter onto the oysters. Enjoy!

  1. OMG – I think I’ve died and gone to heaven. I used to open them, put them on the grill, throw on some Parmesan Cheese and melted butter, but this … words fail. I have to go to the store now and buy oysters.

  2. LL, love how you’ve streamlined the assembly of the oysters…ie. no shucking. I have a big dinner with oysters and I’ll try this out.

  3. Oh, how I wish I liked oysters because these pictures look AMAZING! Never been a fan of the slimy little buggers though. Anyway, still loving the awesome photography, and I’ll be sure to share your recipe on my blog/Pinterest/Twitter/Facebook/everything. Rock on!
