Cooking Louisiana  -  Grilled Oysters
Grilled Oysters are great either on a charcoal pit or gas grill. You can also Grill Oysters in the oven which is what I've done this time.

If you shuck your own oysters you can cook them right in the shell. If not, you can do them in aluminum foil or even muffin pans (works great), but, use a little oyster juice to cook them in. You can also purchase reusable ceramic oyster shells made specifically for grilling oysters. Loftin Oysters

You can vary the recipes for this so don't hesitate to be creative. Cooking time depends on heat level and oyster size. Add smoking woods to the charcoal pit for a great flavor.


Remove oyster from shell and add a pinch of Creole seasoning to the shell. Replace Oyster and add a few drops of oyster juice, then, top with a 3 - 5 drops Olive Oil, a pinch of Italian seasoning, a pinch of creole seasoning and top with a sprinkle of Parmesan Cheese. [See variables below]

Place on hot grill until edges curl, or about 15 minutes (depends how hot the fire is) or bake at about 375ºF till done.
