Oysters on the grill are a nutritious and easy appetizer to make. One serving, or 3 ounces, of these tasty little guys provide 567 percent of our daily value of B12, which helps with better brain and cognitive health, especially for older adults. They also provide 128 percent of our daily value of zinc, a mineral to help with immunity, male health and wound healing.
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon Sriracha
2 teaspoons shallots, finely minced
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoons cilantro, minced
Oysters on the half shell
Mix the butter with the shallots, sriracha, lime, salt and cilantro. Let set up in the refrigerator. It doesn’t have to set up completely, but it should be more solid than liquid. Meanwhile, heat the grill (or broiler) until very hot. Toss each oyster with a dollop of butter. Grill or broil for 3-4 minutes. Be careful as the shells will be very hot.
