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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
