[step-list-wrapper title=”How to make it” time=””]
[step-item number=”1″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Place the oysters, flat shells up, in a large saucepan. Add enough cold water to cover the bottom and steam, covered, over a moderate heat for 2 minutes, until they open. [/step-item]

[step-item number=”2″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Remove from the heat and leave to cool. Preheat the grill to high.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”3″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Mash the butter in a small bowl; peel the garlic cloves and crush them in, then mix in the breadcrumbs. Rinse, dry and finely chop enough parsley to give 2 to 3 tablespoons and add it to the butter with a little salt and plenty of pepper.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”4″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Half fill a grill pan with coarse salt. Open the oysters, taking care not to lose any juices. Cut the oyster from each shell and place it in the deeper one, discarding the other. Set the oysters firmly in the salt so they do not wobble, and top with some breadcrumb mixture.[/step-item]

[step-item number=”5″ image_url=”” title=”” ]Grill for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the topping bubbles and is lightly browned. Serve immediately.[/step-item][/step-list-wrapper]
