Smoked oysters with a beer, lemon and oil infused butter

Serve 2


  • 12 oysters (we used BeauSoleill Oysters)
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup beer ( we used Good Robot Ten thousand Pound Pilsner)
  • 1 chili pepper, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • 2 shallots, thinly diced
  • Green onion slivers
  • Grilled lemon wedges


  1. In a small sauce pan, melt better and sauté the chili pepper, shallots, salt and pepper.
  2. Add the beer and parmesan and set aside.
  3. Bring your smoker to a smoking point at 225 degree, if you don’t have a smoker you can bring your BBQ to high heat and add wood chips on you grill until it starts to smoke.
  4. Place your oysters on the grill and add a good tsp of the beer butter mixture, topped with some green onion slivers and serve with grilled lemon wedges.
