They say at Drago's in NOLA, "mother nature made the oysters, we just perfected them." A friend mentioned these oysters a few weeks ago and we decided to give the recipe a shot. We were not disappointed. Absolutely delicious! The compound butter is also awesome on steaks, chicken or as a bread dipper.


Ingredients


SAUCE

2 stick unsalted butter, very soft
1 tsp kosher salt
2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
8 Tbsp pecorino romano
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp white pepper
2 Tbsp italian parsley, minced
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp hot sauce


OYSTERS

4 doz oysters, freshly shucked
pecorino romano for finish
italian parsley, minced for garnish
lemon wedges for serving
crusty french bread



Directions

Mix together all of the ingredients for the sauce.
Heat a charcoal or gas grill until very hot. Place the oysters on the hottest spot on the grill and let them cook in their own juices for a few minutes until they start to bubble and the edges curl.

WARNING: The shells will crack, pop and even explode on this step. Keep children away and wear eye protection. As long as eyes are covered, the popping will not hurt.

Top each with a generous portion of the sauce, enough to fill up the shell. When the sauce starts to bubble and sizzle sprinkle each oyster with about a Tbsp of Pecorino Romano.

Let the Oysters go until the sauce on the edges of the shells gets nice and brown. Garnish with minced Parsley.

Serve while still sizzling with Lemon wedges and fresh bread.

I'm big fan of this recipe! It's super tasty and goes well with muscles or any other shellfish can think of.

That looks awesome! I may try that recipe on my next batch if I can get past opening them. I love them raw, raw, RAW! Lime, Sea salt, Tapatio. Thanks for sharing.

My mouth is watering. I like mine raw. I chuck a bunch separating hem from the bottom shell and leaving them sitting there in a pan of ice. Then add Louisiana hot sauce. Drakes Bay is my go to for oysters for the family picnic, 4th of July, or other special occasions. I like the scrubs them clean and rinse with water before I cook or eat them raw. For cooked I melt butter, add garlic, maybe some white wine and Parmesan. Last time I added some cooked bacon. I wish I headed up to Sacramento more because going out to Drakes Bay is a much better deal. Hopefully they stay open. Drakes Estero already was closed to fishing. That s all I will say.

Yeah I can't imagine paying that for them no matter how tasty they are.

That recipe has me wanting to go get some now.

I've NEVER payed more than .50 a piece and even then I thought I was getting ripped off.

I usually wait til I can pick em up for about ten cents a piece.

Sometimes A&A Supermarket or SF Supermarket will sell them in 25lbs bag fresh and live...I believe their under $40 from the last time I bought them. Enough for a full belly w/ no room for any beer.
