Grilled Oysters

Author: Canadian Living

Enjoy these unusual but easypickup appetizers at your next backyard barbecue. Grilled oysters have a slightly smoky flavour and, best of all, they are the supreme source of zinc.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion grated
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 24 large oysters (such as Malpeque) shucked
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Method

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.
