I must admit, I wanted NOTHING to do with this week's flavor! I've noticed that the "winter foods" in this project are not my cup of tea (or coffee, as I also dislike tea). Luckily, Brad will eat oysters, so they did not go to waste. Brad will eat ANYTHING, except one of the upcoming ingredients... but you will find out what that is soon enough.
Brad threw the oysters on a hot grill until they opened up. (about 3 minutes) I thought, "Poor things... I wonder if they know they are one of the ugliest foods on earth?" Beware that sizzling spits of juice and fragments of shell may fly at you during this part. I was safely in the kitchen mincing parsley, and in no danger.
He brought them inside, popped them open with his oyster knife, and left the oyster in the half shell. I quickly drizzled them with olive oil, minced garlic, chopped parsley, a couple drops of Worcestershire sauce, and a little grated parmigiano.
I have no idea if this is a typical way of eating oysters. I was lucky to even FIND oysters, and Brad ate 3 of the 6 we cooked. You know where the rest went. The best adjective I could get out of Brad was, "They were OK. " Since I did not taste them, this does not sound like a recommendation. We won't be doing this (or anything else with oysters) any time soon. Is it Spring yet?
PS: The grill was hot so we had a great steak, grilled asparagus, and Pommes Anna for dinner. REAL FOOD.
