    makes 12 Oysters


The cooks at Gilhooley's in San Leon, Texas, grill their oysters with parmesan; broiling them works, too. Here's our step-by-step gallery on how to shuck oysters.


  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tbsp. worcestershire
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped garlic
  • 1 12 tsp. Tabasco
  • 12 oysters, shucked, on half shell
  • 12 small shrimp, cooked and peeled
  • 13 cup finely grated parmesan
  • Lemon slices, for serving


Step 1

Heat oven to broil; place a rack 3" from heating element. In a food processor, pulse butter, worcestershire, garlic, and Tabasco until smooth.

Step 2

Arrange oysters on a foil-lined baking sheet. Top each oyster with a shrimp and some of the butter mixture; sprinkle with parmesan. Broil until oysters just curl, about 5 minutes. Serve with lemon slices.
