  • Serves: 6
  • Prep: 5 minutes
  • Cook: 5 minutes
  • Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients:

6-12 fresh oysters

champagne or prosecco (optional)

parmesan cheese

handful of parsley

a wedge of lemon

  1. Shuck your fresh oysters and pour out their liquor (less excess liquid will help them grill nicely).
  2. Lay them out on a baking tray or, preferably, on a standing rack.
  3. Pour some champagne or prosecco in a bowl and use a tablespoon to pour the champagne on each of the oysters (this is optional, you can choose to not include alcohol if you prefer).
  4. Grate a generous amount of parmesan on each of the oyster.
  5. Then place your dressed oysters in the grill for 3-4 minutes at 200 degrees or until the parmesan starts to bubble.
  6. While your oysters are grilling, grab a handful of parsley and finely chop them.
  7. Remove your oysters from the grill once they are done. As the oyster shells are very hot, carefully transfer the oysters to a plate using kitchen tongs and let them cool. 
  8. To add a little more indulgence, add a drop of champagne or prosecco to your cooked oysters (optional) and sprinkle the chopped parsley on top.
  9. Squeeze a touch of lemon juice on each oyster and serve.
