Oyster Recipes

This is a quick and easy way to make grilled oysters at home. This is a version that we eat in Japan. It's pretty simple but has some fantastic flavours. We even make this in the toaster oven with no adjustments to this recipe. Enjoy!


*If you don't have Mirin, you can substitute it by adding 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar to 1/2 cup of white wine or sherry.

Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 6 oysters in shell
  • 3 Tbsp Mirin
  • 3 Tbsp white miso
  • 3 Tbsp mayonnaise


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Wash the oyster shells in cool water with a brush. Hold an oyster with a towel, flat side up. Insert your knife between shells to separate it. Use a twisting motion as you go along.
  2. Make sure to cut the muscle which is holding the shells closed. When you cut the muscle, the top shell can be removed very easily.
  3. Heat up the Mirin and miso in a small pan over medium to low heat. Pour into a bowl.
  4. Stir in the mayonnaise and mix well.
  5. Drizzle the sauce over the oyster meat in the shells and loosely cover with foil. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes, remove the foil, and bake 5 minutes longer. Serve immediately with lemon wedges.

How do I make stew from frozen oysters with no liquid? Pictured below are the oysters in one of my bowls thawing out.

I wonder what you mean by no liquid - do you not even want to add water to it?

If not, try this recipe that says
1 lb oysters
6 cups milk
4 tablespoons butter

YOu should of cours thaw the oysters in the fridge for a good 24 hours before cooking, and in a container that catches all the melting fluid, which then will go into your stew to add flavour.
