Grilled Oysters With Green Onion Butter

Makes 5 servings


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup minced scallions
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 3/4 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 36 oysters, washed and scrubbed


  1. Knead the butter by hand (or place in a mixer with a paddle attachment on medium speed) until it is soft and pliable. Add the scallions, soy sauce, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper and mix to combine.
  2. Roll the butter into a log that is about 1/2 inch in diameter. Slice into 36 equal portions and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Preheat a grill to high heat.
  4. Place the oysters cup side down on the grill, and cook until they pop open, 3 1/2 to 4 minutes.
  5. Remove the oysters from the grill and use tongs to carefully remove the flat side of the shell. Use an oyster knife or a butter knife to remove the oyster from its shell, taking care not to drain the liquid. Return the oyster to the shell and immediately top with a portion of butter. Serve immediately.
