oystersI'm responding to the original post, my family has eaten oysters with "the chili sauce with the rooster and green top" for years. Except we BBQ the oysters.
Here's the low down:
I love eating the cute, tiny raw oysters but you can get a bargain on a large bag. In Seattle I used to shop at the Pike Place Market and get a dozen for 3.99. Anyways, these are large and not that great for eating raw as you can choke on these monsters. We just scrubbed them outside and grilled them on a super hot grill. This is a bit of an assembly line dinner so gather friends and beer.
2-3 dozen oysters
lime and lemon wedges
Red rooster, green top hot sauce
sliced green onions
salt and pepper
1. Place oysters on hot grill and cook unitl they pop open and you burn your legs form the exploding juices.
2. After they pop, 2-5 mins. they are easy to open but use a towel cuz their hot, squeeze lime, add hot sauce and green onions and swallow whole, careful not to burn lips on hot shell, the chase with cold beer Ahh!!
After oysters are cooked the fire has died down enough to grill all the other goodies you have prepared. I miss my deck.
