  • 30g butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot chilli sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 12 oysters, shucked
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives


Step 1
On a side burner or stove top, heat the butter, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, hot chilli sauce, lemon juice and smoked paprika in a saucepan over high heat. Leave the mixture to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 2
Prepare the barbecue for indirect cooking over medium heat (190°C to 230°C). If using a Weber® Q® barbecue, set up your barbecue with a convection tray and a trivet.

Step 3
Place a teaspoon of the butter mixture over each oyster and top with a sprinkle of the grated Parmesan cheese.

Step 4
Carefully place the oysters on the barbecue and roast over indirect medium heat, with the lid closed, until the juices have started to bubble, about 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 5
Remove the oysters from the barbecue and garnish with a sprinkle of the finely chopped chives.
