Classic Parmesan-Garlic Baked Oysters

Yield: 24 oysters

  • 1 stick butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons minced parsley
  • 24 oysters in shell
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Melt butter. Stir in garlic and set aside to cool and thicken slightly.
  3. Mix Parmesan, breadcrumbs, and parsley; set aside.
  4. Shuck oysters, draining the liquor (save it to flavor some rice or couscous). Cover the bottom of a sheet pan or cast-iron skillet with rock salt.
  5. Top each oyster with about 1 teaspoon butter-garlic mixture, and enough cheese-breadcrumb mixture to cover the open shell. Place oysters on rock salt. Bake 10 minutes. Use tongs to remove oysters.
