With these luxurious, but simple flavors, we can't go wrong. The delectable oysters will have everyone thinking you're a fancy schmancy chef.
What You'll Need
- 12 oysters on the half shell
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 1/2 cup soft breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
What to Do
- Preheat oven to broil. Place oysters on a baking sheet; set aside.
- Heat oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions and saute until tender. Add breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, black pepper, and red pepper, stirring well. Spoon breadcrumb mixture over oysters.
- Broil 5-1/2 inches from heat 2 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
To shuck or open an oyster, hold the oyster, flat side up, firmly against a cutting board. Insert an oyster knife tip between the shells near the hinge. Twist the blade, and push it into the opening, prying the oyster open. Move the blade along the inside of the upper shell to free the muscle. Discard the top shell of the oyster and any bits of shell. Voila! You've got oysters on the half shell.

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
