This is concoction was developed by my buddy and I during a block party. We had people standing in line. Be sure to use leather gloves when shucking hot oysters. Sounds like a pain, but well worth the work.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallot
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons chile-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®)
  • 12 fresh oysters in shells
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 In a medium bowl, stir together the butter, cilantro, garlic, shallot, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, and sriracha sauce. Spoon onto waxed paper and roll into a log. Place into the freezer until set.
  2. 2 Preheat a grill for high heat.
  3. 3 Place whole oysters on the hot grill for 3 to 5 minutes, or until almost done. Remove the top shell from the oysters, without spilling any liqueur, and return them to the grill. Slice the butter log into 1/4 inch slices, and place a slice on top of each oyster. Grill until the butter melts, then serve on a bed of rock salt for presentation.

  1. I made a version of this for a tailgate party at a football game. I didnt add the Sriracha sauce merely because I was trying to make the butter with ingredients I had on hand. I also used red onion instead of shallot. It was awesome and definitely a hit. Next time I will make - Read more ...
  2. This is an awesome recipe although if you are making a dozen oysters cut the butter sauce in half and you will still have some left over. Speaking of which....I used my left over sriracha butter to put over salmon a couple nights later and it was absolutely killer.
  3. These are REALLY delicious. I mourn not living in an area where I can get fresh oysters but it still worked out very well minus the extra work to open the oysters that wouldn't open on their own. HIGHLY recommended.
  4. OMG this is GREAT!!! Thanks LOVE GARLIC yummmmmy:) 5
  5. Great Recipe! I celebrated my father's birthday with a seafood night and the butter was a hit! Hits the spot with steamed/grilled shrimp oysters and crab meat! Will definitely use this recipe again.
  6. Great for Oysters. Maybe a little too much garlic and in general I think the recipe makes too much butter for the amount of shellfish. The flavor is good but I tried it on clams too and was not a fan. Probably more because clams taste too fishy too me.
  7. Very very good! Probably the best Oyster recipe out there. Try the butter on clams and mussels as well!
  8. Very interesting combination of flavors. Will make again
