Baked Oysters

Bake the shucked oysters in individual ramekins, in a casserole dish, or on the half shell, topped with the bread crumb mix. Whatever method you choose, be sure the oysters are as dry as possible by draining and toweling them off before cooking. If you're cooking them on the half shell, remove the oysters from their shells first, dry them on a towel, and replace them in the shells.

Baked Oysters


1/4 cup salted butter
1/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons finely minced fresh parsley
2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
2 tablespoons finely chopped scallions (green parts only)
1 1/2 pint fresh shucked oysters (about 2 1/2 dozen medium-sized oysters), drained


  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Mix in the olive oil and heat a few minutes longer. Add garlic, scallions, and all of the spices, and heat until soft.
  2. Add the bread crumbs and mix well, then remove the pan from the heat. Place the well-drained oysters in individual ramekins or gratin dishes, in a nine-by-nine-inch casserole dish, or individually on the half shells. Spoon equal portions of the bread crumb mixture over each.
  3. Bake in a preheated 450ºF oven until the topping is well browned, about 18 minutes. Set on dinner plates and serve immediately.

Serves 6 as a side dish or appetizer.
