Oysters on the Half Shell


Those fortunate to live near an ocean, will most likely be able to buy fresh oysters at local seafood markets.   With a little shopping around, most people living inland are able to purchase these delicacies pretty easily as well.  Even if the oysters you source are frozen, this recipe proves to be a great way to enjoy this nutrient packed treat.  Close your eyes and you can almost hear the waves crashing on the beach!



  • 6 large fresh raw oysters on the half shell
  • Juice from one fresh lemon
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves pressed
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt-free hot sauce



Rinse oysters under cold water and set aside.  Combine remaining ingredients in small pitcher and stir until well blended.  Use a small barbecue brush to spread sauce over each oyster, coating generously.  Place oysters on broiler pan and broil on low for 5-10 minutes. Oysters should be lightly browned on tops.  Remove from oven and serve with fresh lemons.  Oysters can be served in the shell and when cooked thoroughly will be easily removed with a small fork.
