Smoky Grilled Oysters with Garlic Herb Butter

Healthy Fact of the Day

Oysters are not only a delicacy but also a sustainable seafood choice. They help filter and clean the water in which they grow, with a single oyster capable of filtering up to 50 gallons of water per day, promoting a healthier ecosystem for other marine life.



  • 24 fresh oysters, shucked
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Lemon wedges for serving
  • Hot sauce (optional)




  1. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (about 400°F or 200°C).
  2. In a small bowl, mix the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, thyme leaves, lemon juice, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper until well combined.
  3. Arrange the shucked oysters on a baking sheet or tray, keeping them as level as possible to prevent the juices from spilling.
  4. Place a small dollop (about 1 teaspoon) of the garlic herb butter mixture on top of each oyster.
  5. Carefully transfer the oysters to the preheated grill, using tongs or a spatula to keep them level. Close the grill lid and cook for 4-6 minutes, or until the oysters are slightly plump and the butter is melted and bubbly.
  6. Using tongs, carefully remove the grilled oysters from the grill and transfer them to a serving platter.
  7. Serve the smoky grilled oysters immediately with lemon wedges and hot sauce (if desired) on the side.


Indulge in the briny, buttery goodness of these smoky grilled oysters, where the delicate flavors of the sea mingle with the rich, aromatic garlic herb butter, creating a mouthwatering delicacy that’ll transport your senses to the rugged coastlines and salty sea breezes of your favorite seaside retreat!
