  • gas or charcoal grill
  • tongs
  • hot pads


  • 1 dozen oysters
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 glass white wine


  • Pre-heat grill to high (immolate).
  • Place oysters on the grill, cup-up (the flat part of the shell facing up).
  • When oysters open, pry the top shell off and discard, leaving oysters with their liquor in the shells
  • Mix together a little lemon juice, white wine and dill in a small bowl, and spoon onto the oysters
  • When the liquid is bubbling and the meat has firmed up, remove oyster to a serving platter, being careful not to spill liquid.
  • When oysters have cooled off, they are ready to slurp. Be careful, though. The shells get incredibly hot.
