July 18, 2008: Oyster Barbecue Tips

Posted by Adam James on December 05, 2014 2 Comments
This tip is from a customer in the seafood store, who got it from Mo's Seafood Restaurant in Newport, Oregon: Fill a tray with rock salt and put it on the barbecue, and then set the oysters on the tray to cook. Apparently this ensures that the oysters stay moist, and don't overcook. It sounds kinda hokey, and like a waste of good ice-cream salt, but we might just try it. And if anyone out there has ever heard of this, please let us know. Also, store customer Rick says he tops his barbecued oysters with melted swiss cheese and tabasco. Customer Steve recommends adding a splash of beer to the oysters once they've opened up.

Hmm… we have several employees who’ve worked in the retail store for over a decade, and I’ll ask around! I’ll let you know if I find anything. Thanks Carole.

Years ago, there was an older woman there at the store who gave me a recipe for BBQ’d oysters with pesto. Is there anyone there now who could recall the recipe? We just loved it and I think of it often. Any help you can give me would be appreciated.
