Char-grilled Honey Parmesan Oysters

Char-Grilled Honey Parmesan Oysters

Char-grilled Honey Parmesan Oysters tastes indulgent due to the flavor created by the dollop of creamy olive oil mayo, honey and parmesan mixture that tops the oyster before it goes onto a screaming hot grill. The oysters cook in under 10 minutes and you will know they are getting ready to plate when the shells are nicely charred, and the oyster is bubbling. 

  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings 1x


  • 1 dozen large oysters, shucked with half-shell left on
  • ½ cup olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp. garlic, chopped
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • ½ tsp. paprika
  • 2 tsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cups Parmesan, shredded
  • Lemon wedges for garnish


  1. Shuck oysters and keep half shell on each (or have a fishmonger shuck for you). Place oysters (in their half-shells) on baking sheet and keep them refrigerated until ready to use.
  2. Prepare honey-cheese topping by mixing all the remaining ingredients in medium bowl; mix well.
  3. Remove oysters from the fridge. Top each oyster with a heaping teaspoon of the honey-cheese mixture. Refrigerate oysters again until ready to grill.
  4. Preheat grill to high. Place oysters on grill; cook 10 minutes or until oyster shells begin to char and the honey-cheese topping is brown and bubbly.
  5. Using tongs, carefully transfer oysters from grill to serving tray. Serve immediately.


Suggested accompaniment: grilled baguette
