Broiled Florida Oysters

servings 4
calories 316


2 dozen fresh Florida oysters, shucked and on the half shell 

1 stick unsalted butter 

Florida hot sauce, to taste 

2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine 

3 lemons (1 juiced and 2 sliced for garnish)  

1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped fine 

1 teaspoon Florida seafood seasoning blend 

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 

1/4 cup panko or regular unseasoned breadcrumbs 

1 teaspoon olive oil 

Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste 


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small sauce pot, combine butter, hot sauce, garlic, seafood seasoning blend and lemon juice and season with salt and ground pepper. Melt the butter mixture over medium-low heat and stir to combine. Taste and adjust with more lemon or hot sauce if needed. Remove from heat and set aside. 

In a small mixing bowl, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, olive oil and parsley. Use a fork to mix breadcrumb mixture and set aside. 

Place oysters on the half shell on a cookie sheet. Spoon an even amount of melted butter over each oyster. Next, evenly sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the top of each buttered oyster. Carefully place the oysters in the preheated oven and switch to broil. During this stage of the cooking, it is important to keep a close eye on the oysters under the broiler; they should only take 2 to 3 minutes to cook. Carefully remove the oysters from the broiler and let cool slightly. Serve broiled oysters with any leftover butter mixture and lemon wedges.
