Pan Roasted Florida Oysters



  • 12 oysters, on the half shell
  • 1/4 stick unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper, fine diced
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped fine
  • sea salt to taste
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • lemon, quartered for garnish


  1. Preheat oven broiler on medium-high.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine butter, bell pepper, garlic and parsley.
  3. Stir butter to combine all ingredients, and season lightly with salt and butter.
  4. Place all 12 oysters in an oven-proof roasting pan.
  5. Evenly distribute a dollop of the mixed butter over the top of each oyster.
  6. Place the roasting pan on the center rack in the oven.
  7. Carefully watch the oysters under the broiler. Once the sides of the oyster turn gray and bubble around the edges, it’s time to remove them from the oven.
  8. Let oysters cool slightly. Serve with lemon and crusty bread.
