These Grilled Oysters with Habanero Butter make a perfect tailgate snack, BBQ side dish or a quick and delicious appetizer.
2 pound sticks unsalted butter softened, 1/2
2 tablespoons El Yucateo Green Habanero hot sauce
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 dozen medium to large oysters
Light a grill. Stir together the softened butter, habanero sauce, salt and pepper until well combined. Transfer the butter mixture to a sheet of plastic wrap and roll it into a 2-inch-thick log. Refrigerate until the butter has firmed up, about 15 minutes. Slice the butter into 36 pats.
Place the oysters on the hot grill, flat-side up. Cover the grill and cook until the oysters open, about 5 minutes. Using tongs, transfer the oysters to a platter, being careful to keep the liquid inside the shells.
Remove the top shells and loosen the oysters from the bottom shells. Top each oyster with a pat of habanero butter and return the oysters to the grill. Cover the grill and cook until the butter is mostly melted and the oysters are hot, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.
