Simple Oysters in the Shell


24 oysters in the shell
24 fresh lemon slices
Seafood cocktail sauce


Clean each oyster shell top and bottom well. The grill needs to be very hot to cook these.

Place the oysters shell and all on the grill. Close the lid. Check every 3 minutes or so and when the shells begin to open remove them from the grill.

Carefully open the shell being sure to retain the juice and the oyster in the bottom shell. Squeeze the fresh lemon juice over the top of each oyster.

Serve with the cocktail sauce. Be careful not to over cook the oysters.  When the shell starts to open you want to remove them immediately.  If cooked too long they will become rubbery.
