Herbed Baked Oysters recipe


24 fresh oysters.
¾ cup of breadcrumbs.
2 cloves garlic, chopped.
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard.
1 teaspoon of olive oil.
½ teaspoon of fresh thyme, chopped.
½ teaspoon of fresh basil, chopped.
¼ teaspoon of fresh marjoram, chopped.
Zest of one lemon.
2 tablespoons of grated Parmesan cheese.


Shuck the oysters and set aside on the half shell. Discard the remaining shells.

In a bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, garlic, mustard, olive oil, thyme, basil, marjoram, lemon zest and Parmesan.

Top each oyster with about 1 teaspoon of the breadcrumb mixture and place the oysters on a baking sheet. Cook under high broiler (grill) for about 6 minutes or until the oysters are crispy and golden brown.

Serve the hot, with a wedge of lemon and your favorite hot pepper sauce on the side.
