Grilled Mexican Oysters

There are many ways to cook oysters, this grilled Mexican oysters version creates a fresh and flavorsome version.

The homemade vinegar dressing removes the slimy texture that some people dislike about eating oysters. Yet the start of the cook in the shell and addition of butter helps keep moist.

If you don’t like too much heat remove the seeds and white pith of the chilis. Alternatively, you can remove the chili all together with bell pepper  (capsicum) which si the non-hot yet flavorsome member of that family.
