  • 12 oysters fresh
  • 2 limes


  • Rinse off the oysters and fire up your grill to medium heat
  • Set the oysters with the round side down on the grill and as soon as you hear them to start popping open, remove them from the grill. Take care when you remove them to keep the natural liquid/ brine inside the shell, tongs work great for this. I then set them on a deviled egg tray and it worked perfect.
  • Remove the tops of the oysters and with a sharp knife gently loosen the grilled oyster from the shell.
  • Squeeze fresh lime juice over the oysters and dive in!
