Thai Roasted Oysters




I love oysters!

Not something you’d expect from a guy who grew up on the border of North Dakota and Minnesota, right?

I fell in love with them while living in Alaska, where the freshest jewels you could imagine were drawn from the crisp, cold, clean waters of Kachemak Bay. We’d roast them in a variety of ways or we’d serve them fresh with mignonette. One thing was for sure, those who ate them preferred them over a fine pearl!

This is a rendition of roasted oysters that I came up with a month ago when the fam was having Thai Chicken Pizza. In my attempt to “Keep It Paleo!”, I designed with todays recipe. It is my favorite new creation and I hope that you’ll give it a go!
