Grilled Oysters are one of our favorite dishes, and Chef Tom tops this one off with a delicious Chorizo Butter that is the perfect complement to the dish.
Grilled Oysters with Chorizo Butter
- 12 large oysters, shells scrubbed
- 4 oz Mexican chorizo
- 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) unsalted butter, diced
- juice and zest of 1 lime
- 1 tsp Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning
- 1/2 cup cilantro, diced
Start with a chimney of lump charcoal, dump the coals in your charcoal grill, creating both direct and indirect cooking zones. When the fire is burning hot, place a Lodge 10” Cast Iron Skillet on a grate, over the fire. Add the chorizo to the pan and cook all the way through. Move off to the side of the fire.
Place the oysters, flat side up, over the coals and cook until shells open. Meanwhile, add the butter, lime juice and Cattleman’s Grill 8 Second Ride Carne Asada Seasoning to the pan of chorizo and whisk while the butter melts.
Once the oysters have all opened detach the oyster and remove the top shell, leaving the oyster in the bottom shell. Place on a serving platter and spoon the chorizo butter over the oysters in their shells. Sprinkle the cilantro and lime zest over all of the oysters.
