The Hawthornes love their oysters.
But you knew that.
We're on our second bushel of oysters.
I wanted grilled,
but the weather wasn't cooperating.
And Mr. Hawthorne refuses to go outside
and grill on the deck in the rain.
Such a woosie.
These oysters were broiled.
This is one of my favorite oyster preparations:
Pour melted butter over oysters.
4 parts grated Parmesan cheese
1-2 parts hot Paprika
Pinch or two of sugar
Sprinkle Parmesan mixture over top of oysters
and place under broiler until nicely browned
and heated through.
This is a most excellent preparation
of this bivalve mollusc.
