About this recipe: This is a deliciously different way to serve oysters. The spicy butter mixture is fabulous. For safety, use leather gloves when shucking hot oysters. Sounds like a lot of trouble, but well worth the work.

Serves: 6 

  • 225g butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons chilli-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha)
  • 12 fresh oysters in shells
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:15min freezing  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, coriander, garlic, shallot, 2 tablespoons of lime juice and hot sauce. Spoon onto greaseproof paper and roll into a log. Place into the freezer until set.
  2. Preheat a barbecue for high heat.
  3. Place whole oysters on the hot barbecue for 3 to 5 minutes, or until almost done. Remove the top shell from the oysters, without spilling any liqueur, and return them to the barbecue. Slice the butter log into 5mm slices, and place a slice on top of each oyster. Barbecue until the butter melts, then serve on a bed of rock salt for presentation.
