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

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 

For the oysters:

24 oysters (in the shell)

1 baguette, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
