Grilled Blue Point Oysters w/mango pico de gallo w/pics

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
3rd straight weekend of grilling oysters, 2nd weekend of fresh Blue Points from Whole Foods. Instead of the garlic butter, then bbq sauce topping I was doing I changed things up a little this time.

Found a recipe for a mango pico de gallo by Bobby Flay.
1 mango diced
1/2 red onion diced
1 jalapeno diced
2 tbsp oil
2 tsp honey
1/2 lime
3 tbsp cilantro

refrigerated for a few hours, then brought it up to room temp before using it as a topping for the finished oysters.

Put the unshucked oysters on the grill and covered it for maybe 5 minutes til they steamed themselves open. I took them off the grill, popped em the rest of the way open, and served them on the halfshell topped with the mango pico de gallo, and a dab of horseradish. Pretty nice, fresh tasting, and alot of flavor. I think I prefer raw, or grilled with some garlic butter, but these looked nice, and were a good change-up.

Yes you sure do come up with some good recipes for differant stuff for sure there Jim. Now I'm not sure on this one it looks fine to me but the mango would over power the taste of the oyster won't it. I personally like the oyster tastewhen they are steamed but it is a really nice looking and I bet tasting too dish. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

I know your pain Jimi. I look at his posts & think to myself, what kind of food high is this man on? His food is off the chart different & interesting and yet I can not turn away or be jealous. It's like, "Darn, I should've thought of that." But that is okay but practice makes perfect.

Jim....you rock!!! points.gif

thanks folks.

i agree anything I have made witha Bobby Flay influence has been great, especially anything with hot peppers.

I lied, food and cooking isnt a hobby, its more like an obession.
