These oysters are luscious!! Great appy or do lots and make a meal out of them with a salad, actually you should make lots anyway, they go very fast as an appy!


  1. Drain oysters or shuck and save deep shell side.
  2. Place drained oysters in a shallow buttered pan.
  3. Or place shucked oysters on shell with some of saved liquor.
  4. Whisk together, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, salt, cayenne (just a few grains),and paprika.
  5. Pour mixture over oysters, either panned or shucked.
  6. If doing on half shell, place them on a cookie sheet.
  7. Place pan or cookie sheet under broiler until the oysters are plump, about 5 minutes, do not overcook.
  8. Serve immediately, with parsley sprinkled over and lemon slices.
  9. Serve panned oysters on hot buttered toast, toast should be crisp, great appy.
  10. Served on half shell makes a great first course for a dinner party, Place 2, even 3 on each shell.

Another keeper. I cooked large sea scallops with the oysters. I think next time I will give the scallops a head start due to the different cooking times. Thanks!

Loved this! Puts a new twist on an old favorite! :) Simple to prepare, unique flavor, and I used a fat free butter spray in place of the real thing, and it was fantastic!
