Method

  • Prep. Grate the Romano cheese and set aside. Cut the butter into pieces, mash the roasted garlic and combine both with the parsley, lemon juice, Creole seasoning, and salt in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the butter is no longer foaming and starts to brown a little, about 5 minutes. Shuck the oysters (see sidebar).
  • Fire up. Light the grill for direct Warp 10 heat. Brush the grill grate clean.
  • Cook. Place the oysters on the half shell directly on the grate and top each with about 2 teaspoons of the sauce and 1 tablespoon of the cheese. Grill until the oyster shells char and the cheese melts and browns around the edges, about 6 minutes.
  • Serve. Remove the oysters to a heat-proof platter or tray. Drizzle another teaspoon of the sauce over each oyster and serve hot with the lemon wedges for squeezing.
