Grilled oysters make for an awesome appetizer especially as the evenings start to cool off but you still want to enjoy fresh seafood outside! They are just so easy to make, you’ll find yourself wishing you bought more than just a dozen. Luckily, this amount of gremolata will more than suffice should you want to add another dozen or two to the grill.
When shucking oysters it’s important to be patient and take your time, their’s nothing worse than a cracked shell, and oysters are a bit tricky if you don’t have a ton of experience.
Try grilling the lemons before squeezing them for juice, it will give the gremolata a smokey essence that will only increase the grilled aspect of the oysters. Use a more neutral olive oil for your gremolata this will allow the brininess of the oyster to shine through!
