Ingredients
  • For the garlic-parsley butter:
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon roasted garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • For the oysters:
  • 24 oysters (in the shell)
  • 1 baguette, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices
Directions
  • Make the garlic-parsley butter: Puree the butter, parsley, shallots, lemon zest, roasted garlic and a little salt and pepper in a food processor until smooth.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Open the oysters with an oyster knife. Divide the oysters among small baking dishes lined with baguette slices. Place a heaping teaspoon of garlic-parsley butter on each oyster. Roast the oysters until the butter is melted, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
