It is romantic, and it has garlic. Make sure that both you and your partner eat lots of it. Both romantic and smelly!
Recipe shamelessly stolen from Suite 101
Baked Oysters With Garlic
12 fresh oysters, shucked and rinsed well
3 tablespoons butter + 1 teaspoon for greasing casserole dish
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry unseasoned breadcrumbs
1-2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Butter a small casserole dish, or for individual servings use ramekin dishes. Set aside.
In a small skillet, melt the butter. Add garlic and breadcrumbs and saute over medium heat until mixture is golden and slightly crumbly. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley. Spoon mixture over oysters and sprinkle with parmesan.
Bake oysters in the preheated oven until bubbly and lightly browned - about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
Makes 2 servings, 6 oysters each.
