Barbecued Oysters

Bailey Farms hot sauces are all natural and of the highest quality. Unlike other sauces that are mostly pepper-vinegar, they are a blend of chiles and fresh vegetables that are cooked down to perfection and deliver the perfect balance of heat and flavor.

1/4 cup tomato based chili sauce
1 Tbsp. oyster sauce
1 Tbsp. Bailey Farms Red Habanero Hot Sauce
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 tsp. chopped cilantro
16 oysters in shells (about 4 in. long), scrubbed


In a small bowl, mix chili sauce, oyster sauce, hot sauce, lime juice, and cilantro.

To shuck each oyster, place the shell, cupped side down, on a heavy towel. Grip the curved end of shell with a towel and hold the oyster level. Firmly insert an oyster knife into the hinge at the narrow end of the oyster between the top and bottom shell. Twist to open, and slide the oyster knife along the underside of the top shell to cut the adductor muscle and free the oyster. Remove the top shell and slide the knife under the oyster to cut it free. Leave the oyster in the shell and set shell side down on a tray.

Spoon an equal portion of the chili sauce mixture onto each oyster.

Set the oysters on a barbecue grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold a hand at grill level only for 2-3 seconds) close the lid on the gas grill and cook until the juices bubble, about 4 minutes.

Serve the hot oysters in their shells.
