Yield: serves 4-6

Ingredients

  • 12 unshucked oysters
  • Coarse salt
  • White wine

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 475°. Nestle oysters flat side up into a bed of coarse salt in a roasting pan. Bake until shells gape, 5-10 minutes. Discard any oysters that don't open. Pry off top shells, keeping oyster liquor from spilling, and cut lower muscles to release flesh. Spoon 1 tbsp. wine over each oyster.
