A simple and spontaneous meal of passion that can be eaten with glorious abandon.
Fresh oysters in their shells
(To make the barbeque-garlic-butter, heat butter, garlic and barbeque sauce — any brand is ok — in a sauté pan to taste.)
Build a hot fire. When it has burned down to coals, place oysters (cup side down) on grill. Oysters will steam in their own juices until they just open — about 3 or four minutes. At that point, you can either remove them from the grill and serve with a bowl of barbeque-garlic-butter dipping sauce, or shuck, return them to the grill and baste them with the barbeque butter until the sauce begins to burn around the edges of the shell. You’re gonna need some gloves to shuck the hot oysters.
