<excerpt>The Aphrodisiac Cookbook

The next best alternative to raw. Oyster aficionados Marie and Richard tested this recipe too, reaffirming in the process the oyster's aphrodisiac power over them:

"Oysters take us back to our honeymoon in New Orleans when we consumed about 3 to 4 dozen a day. Perhaps that memory contributed to the fun we had now, three years later, grilling oysters together and eating them in our make-do, candle-lit picnic in the living room floor." Author: Martha Hopkins/Randall Lockridge Publication: InterCourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook Preparation Steps

Estimated Time: 30 min

1 Remove the top shell of the oysters, being careful not to lose the liquor. (It will make a nice juice for the oysters to simmer in.) 2 Combine the bread crumbs, parsley, and garlic in a small bowl. Spoon on each oyster. Sprinkle with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

3 Grill for 12 minutes or until the bread crumbs are golden.

4 For a simpler version, simply clean the oysters, place on medium-hot grill, and remove when they begin to open. Shuck, squeeze with lemon, et voila.

Serves: 2 - 12 oz portions

Yield: 1½ lb
