Oysters Broiled in Garlic Butter is a simple but delicious recipe for those who need an additional flavour to oysters. Once you have tried these like this, you will be hooked. This is a classic French recipe that is the best way to eat oysters in my opinion. The garlic butter adds texture, flavour and that ever pleasing aroma. The ingredients are simple but each one has a task and they all make it.  Grilling them (broiling) crisps the bread crumbs and melts the butter so everything blends with each other. These are excellent starters and canapes and always make dinner parties stand out

  • Open the oysters, loosen the meat from the lower (curved) shell, and leave it on the shell.
