Broiled Oysters with Siracha-Lime Butter

Adapted from melissav on Food52 The original recipe is pretty straightforward, but the butter recipe made enough for plenty more oysters, so I’ve adapted it to my quantities.


  • Juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon finely minced shallots
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons butter cut into 12 equal cubes
  • a dozen oysters on the half shell


  1. Combine the lime, sriracha, shallot, cilantro and salt in a bowl. Divide among the oysters. Top each oyster with a cube of butter.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the broiler until very hot.
  3. Broil for 5 minutes, until the oysters are opaque, and the butter is bubbling. Allow to cool on a serving platter.
