    This is a classic and simple method for barbecuing oysters which are then served with lemon juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce.

    Serves: 4 

    • 8 fresh oysters in shells
    • 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco, to taste
    • salt to taste

    Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:15min 

    1. Preheat barbecue for high heat.
    2. Place the whole oysters on the barbecue. Cook until they open, 5 to 10 minutes - you will hear the juice sizzling on the hot coals when this happens.
    3. Remove the oysters from the barbecue and pry off the top shell. You may want to wear some heavy gloves to protect yourself from the heat. Slide a knife between the oyster and shell to disconnect. Top each one with 1 dessertspoon of lemon juice, 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce and salt to taste. Serve in the shell while still warm.

    My husband requested oysters for his birthday dinner...we had them raw, in pasta, and in this recipe. This was our favourite! Bar-b-queing the oysters also made shucking much easier. - 29 Sep 2008
