BAKED APALACHICOLA OYSTERS "SEASIDE"

8 fresh Apalachicola oysters, shucked, on the half shell

8 slices of Garlic/Chive Butter (recipe follows)

Place a medium-size sauté pan over high heat. Meanwhile, place one slice of garlic/chive butter on each oyster. Arrange oysters in a single layer in sauté pan. Being careful to avoid steam, pour ½ cup water into pan and cover. After about 2 minutes, check to see if butter is melted and oysters are cooked. Turn off heat, transfer to a plate and garnish with lemon wedges.

 

Garlic/Chive Butter

1# unsalted butter (softened)
 

1 Tbs. chopped garlic

1 Tbs. chopped chives

1 Tbs. diced shallots

Juice of 1 lemon

Salt and pepper to taste

Using a hand mixer or food processer, mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined. Cut a sheet of parchment paper into 4 sheets 10"x10". Place ¼ of the butter mixture on 1 sheet and roll into a cylinder. Continue until you have 4 rolls. Twist the ends to seal, and place in freezer until ready to use.
