Cooking right on the coals!

People love to cook seafood over fire!

From shrimp to fish, we love the taste of the salty food from the sea over a hot fire. One of my favorites has to be oysters. Eat them raw or cooked, they are such a delicious flavor from the ocean. With this recipe, I wanted to do something a little different. I wanted to cook them right on the coals full of spicy butter and herbs!
