Key West Oysters


  • 1 dozen oysters on the half shell
  • 1/2-3/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
  • 3/4 cup Gruyere cheese, grated
  • Lemon wedges for serving

This is a super simple delicious way to serve oysters on the half shell. These oysters are topped with garlic butter and Gruyere cheese, then grilled over charcoal.


  • Open oysters retaining as much juice as possible.
  • Melt the butter in a micro wave, then add the minced garlic.
  • Pour the butter mixture over each oyster, the top with the grated cheese.
  • Place the oysters directly over a hot charcoal fire and cook for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly.
  • Tip: To open oysters easily and them to a pan with about 1 inch of boiling water, when you see the shells open slightly, remove and open.
