Grilled Butter Oysters
These are served at the America Eats Tavern in Washington D.C.
6 tablespoons butter
¾ teaspoon mace, freshly ground
¾ teaspoon Black peppercorn, freshly ground
1. Melt the butter in a small pan.
2. Place the whole, raw oysters on a rack on the grill. Allow the oysters to begin opening. Once they begin to open, immediately remove the flat half of the shell. Place the oysters back on the rack. Top the oysters with butter and allow the grill to flame up – this will add more flavor to the oysters. Sprinkle the oysters with fresh ground pepper and mace. Serve immediately.
