BBQ Oysters with Garlic, Shallots, Bacon, and Pepperjack Cheese

This is my second post of my 45th birthday celebration.  The group had moved down to the fire pit while I was putting together some bbq oysters, they had just finished off four huge fresh Dungeness crabs.

So the boys were getting prime rib on the Auspit and getting a fire going.

  • 12 medium to large Oysters, shucked, and taking a butter knife releasing the oyster from shell for easy removal.
  • 3 shallots finely chopped
  • 4 garlic sliced
  • butter
  • 6 slices of pepper jack cheese
  • 4 slices of bacon

Cook the bacon over medium heat, then when done remove to drain the grease onto a paper towel, then chop the bacon.  Add shallots to the pan and sauté until cooked, about 5 minutes on medium high heat.  Take an oyster, put a teaspoon of butter underneath the oyster, along with a few slices of fresh raw garlic.  Add chopped bacon, then the cooked shallots.  Put a slice of pepper jack cheese on top and bbq for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned on top.

These guys are plated and ready for the birthday crew

Bring some forks and some beers because this is amazing.  You can save the shells and buy fresh jarred of oysters and repeat the process over and over again.

 

Just another way to enjoy the fire while watching the prime rib slowly roast.

I hope you enjoy.
