Ring in the New Year in style! Put that grill to work and whip up some world class appetizers to celebrate the night away with your guests. These Smoked Oysters Rockefeller are the perfect show-stopping appetizer to set out alongside that pop of bubbly as the countdown begins.
Oysters Rockefeller has always been a fan favorite for big celebrations. We doubled down on the flavor and cooked these oysters in their shells over a little smoke and heat. The grill adds one more layer of flavor to these delicious bites.
Select fresh recently harvested live oysters from your fishmonger for this recipe as close to prep time as you can. Don’t be afraid to ask when they were harvested to make sure you are getting a fresh batch. Canned oysters won’t offer the same flavor or texture for this recipe and would offer no natural protection against the heat of the grill. In the shell, they open and get in just enough of that awesome smokey flavor. The shells also work as a great serving dish with a little added presentation for your party.
