2 dozen fresh Florida oysters, shucked and on the half shell
1 stick unsalted butter
Hot sauce (your favorite), to taste
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
3 lemons (1 for juice, 2 cut for garnish)
1 tablespoon fresh garlic, chopped fine
1 teaspoon seafood seasoning
¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
¼ cup panko or regular unseasoned breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. In a small sauce pot combine butter, hot sauce, garlic, seafood seasoning and lemon juice, season with salt and fresh ground pepper. Melt the butter mixture over medium-low heat, 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 breadcrumb mixture over the top of each buttered oyster. Carefully place oysters in 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. The oysters should only take 2 to 3 minutes to cook. Carefully remove oysters from the broiler and let cool slightly. Serve broiled oysters with any leftover butter mixture and lemon wedges.
