Preparation

In large bowl, stir together onion, hoisin, garlic and hot pepper flakes. Pat oysters dry and add to bowl; stir gently to coat. Let marinate for 15 minutes.

Thread 2 oysters lengthwise onto each of 12 small soaked wooden skewers; place on greased grill over high heat. Brush with reserved marinade; cook, turning once, for about 2 minutes or until firm. Sprinkle with coriander.

 

Additional information :

Substitution: If you can't locate raw oysters, substitute 2 cans (each 133 g) whole oysters. Don't marinate them; simply brush them with marinade while grilling.

Tip: If your oysters are very big, use 2 parallel skewers to hold them in place on the grill. Look for shucked oysters in containers in the fish section of your supermarket or shuck your own if not available.
