Broiled Oysters

  • Large oysters
  • Butter
  • 1/4 lb butter
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
Drain the oysters in a colander and then spread them between 2 dish towels. Let them lie for 10-15 minutes (be patient, you rascal).

Oysters can only be broiled on the double wire gridirons. Butter the bars of the broiler to prevent the oysters from sticking. Lay the oysters close together, as many as you can get on the broiler. Put them over a bright fire. When the oysters begin to brown, turn the other side of the gridiron down.

If you have more oysters than your broiler will hold, keep the first batch covered closely and set the pan in the oven while you proceed with the rest.

Have a very hot, deep tin dish or pan ready. Put in the butter and as much black pepper and salt as will season the oysters to taste. Turn the oysters into it and stir them well through the butter. Serve on a hot dish.
