Deliciously Simple Oysters

oysters** Put very fresh (unshucked) oysters on a hot grill until the shells pop enough to be opened.

(You can also do this inside with NO MESS by putting the oysters on an old cookies sheet, put in a oven for about 20 minutes until the shells are ready to open).

lemon juice
white wine
green Tabasco
Melt these together and keep hot.

For 2 dozen oysters, you might try:
- 1 stick butter
- 1/4 c lemon juice
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tablespoon green Tabasco

There will be sauce left over (not too much ..) that could be used to "dip" or add more to satisfy individual tastes.

Open the oysters, remove top shell, and spoon butter mixture (generously) over the oysters.

Serve HOT!!

** Of course the very best oysters to use ...
      are those we grow ourselves in the "Urstad Oyster Farm" !
