New Orleans Charbroiled Oysters Recipe: Cheesy Garlic Butter Grilled Oysters

Not only are oysters romantic on Valentine's Day, but we have Mardi Gras time, too. Oysters are popular in Louisiana all the time, but people in other parts of the country may not eat these molluscs as often. Now is a great time to give oysters a try. 

Oysters can be smoked, steamed, pan-fried, fried, grilled, baked, roasted and eaten raw. Here's an easy charbroiled oysters recipe from New Orleans that you will make for life. This easy oyster recipe is delish! A mixture of butter, garlic, black pepper and dried oregano is mixed together and spread on the opened oysters. The oysters are grilled over medium-high heat until they begin to curl up and the butter has melted. The oysters are then topped with Parmesan cheese and a little parsley. Done. Now time to devour them. 

Serve these grilled oysters as a main dish for dinner with a salad, vegetable or grain, or as an appetizer
