Recipe by Chef floWer
This dish is for people who love hot and spicy foods. The curry paste I use comes in a small 114 gram can and is called 'Brand Maesri Red Curry Paste' I found it in an Asian store. I normally microwave the oysters but you can place them on the BBQ (Bottom facing down) or put them under the griller/boiler. I first tasted something similar to this at a Ballarat Indian/Italian/Thai Restaurant called Restaurante Da-Uday - http://www.ballarat.com/dauday.htm

I love oysters and I love spicy, so I knew this was a marriage made in heaven on this recipe. Oh where to start with the delight of this recipe. Now we are coming upon Spring time, in Maryland (at least for a while) this usually brings an end to oysters for this season so we celebrated this wonderful seafood with this recipe. I love curry and most especially hot so we were all set. We enjoy oysters raw but I did place them on the barbie Q for just a little bit to bring a bit of warmth, although ~ I tasted this sauce with the raw oysters and we loved it even more. Either way, you cannot go wrong with this recipe and truly a delight to behold! Thank you Chef floWer! Made for *PAC* 2008
