Grilled Oysters


You want to watch these pretty closely. The second that the shells start to open, remove the oysters from the grill and serve. These are a great appetizer for parties around the grill.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6 minutes

Total Time: 16 minutes


  • 12 oysters per person
  • salt and pepper
  • melted butter
  • lemon wedges
  • hot pepper sauce (Tabasco)
  • Worcestershire sauce


Clean oysters thoroughly to remove any mud from the shells. Use either a grill topper (i.e. wok) or heavy foil with several holes punched through it on the grill grate. Place oysters on the grill and close lid. Grill until shells open (about 6 minutes). Remove from grill and cut muscles from the shell. Serve hot with the above sauces and seasonings. It's best to grill them in batches so everyone gets good hot oysters.
