BBQ Oysters Recipe

BBQ Oysters

Serves 6 as an appetizer

What could be easier than this tangy, two-ingredient appetizer? If you are unsure about what type of oysters to get, ask our fishmongers for a seasonal recommendation—they are happy to shuck them for you, too!


  • 1 dozen fresh medium-to-large oysters
  • 6 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce
  • Coarse salt or uncooked rice to level the oysters while baking
  • Chopped chives


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Shuck oysters, leaving oysters in bottom shell and discarding tops.
  3. To keep oysters from tipping while baking, sprinkle a layer of coarse salt or rice on a rimmed baking sheet. Place oysters on salt or rice, if using, or directly on baking sheet.
  4. Spoon 1/2 tablespoon BBQ sauce on each oyster.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or just until oysters are cooked—the edges of the oysters will curl away from the shell.
  6. Arrange on a serving platter and sprinkle with chopped chives, if desired. Serve warm.
