These mouthwatering Chargrilled Oysters are my top pick for date nights with my favourite wine and crusty bread to soak up the buttery saucy goodness! Half shell oysters filled with a luscious lemony, garlicky, butter sauce topped with cheese and chargrilled until melted and golden brown. The perfect appetizer, super impressive made with simple ingredients and ready in less than thirty minutes! Cook these Chargrilled Oysters on the grill or simply broil in the oven.


1 stick butter, room temperature or melted
2 cloves garlic, grated
2 tbsp lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 c. pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano (Parmesan), grated
salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
12 oysters on the half shell
1/2 c. pecorino romano or parmigiano reggiano (Parmesan), grated
2 tbsp parsley, chopped

How to make Chargrilled Oysters

Step 1: Combine the butter, garlic, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, cheese, salt, pepper, cayenne, and parsley and set aside.

Step 2: On a preheated 350 degrees F or 180 degrees C, place the oysters and cook until the juice begins to bubble. Onto each oyster, spoon in about a tbsp of the butter mixture, and sprinkle with cheese. Continue to cook until the cheese is golden brown.

Step 3: Before serving, sprinkle the oysters with parsley. Enjoy with more butter, lemon wedges, hot sauce, and bread.


For this recipe, you can broil the oysters instead of grilling. Start by placing them on a baking sheet, then spoon in a tbsp of the butter mixture into each oyster and top with cheese. Place in a 400 degrees F oven and bake for about 5 minutes until the juices begin to bubble. Set the oven up and broil the cheese for approximately 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. You can add a couple of drops of liquid smoke to the butter mixture if you want a smoky char-grilled flavour.
