  • pinch of Kosher Salt
  • teaspoon Black Pepper, freshly ground
  • tablespoon Garlic, minced

  • 12 larges Large freshly shucked Oysters on the half shell (preferably Louisiana)

  • Heat a charcoal or gas grill until very, very hot. Place the oysters on the hottest spot on the grill and let them cook in their own juices for a few minutes, just until they start to bubble and the edges curl.
  • Top each with a generous portion of the sauce, enough to fill up the shell. When the sauce starts to bubble and sizzle sprinkle each oyster with about a Tbsp of Pecorino Romano. Let the Oysters go until the sauce on the edges of the shells gets nice and brown. Garnish with minced Parsley.
  • Serve while still sizzling with Lemon wedges and fresh bread.

 Whisk together all ingredients.
