Maison Nardin's Recipes

We love eating oysters on the half shell, dressed with a bit of lemon and perhaps some mignonette.

But when they're grilled, fried, or stewed, they can transform into something more than a bit of briny bliss. Here are our best oyster recipes that go beyond the raw bar.

Broiled Oysters with Garlic Breadcrumbs

Enjoy this dish alongside homemade soda bread



  • ½ cup fresh breadcrumbs made from crustless white bread
  • 2 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ½ small garlic clove, pressed
  • ¼ teaspoon Pernod or other anise-flavored liqueur (optional)
  • 12 oysters, freshly shucked and reserved on half shell with juices
  • Lemon wedges


Step 1

Preheat broiler. Place breadcrumbs in small bowl. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Mix in garlic and Pernod, if desired. Pour butter mixture over breadcrumbs; stir to combine.

Step 2

Place oysters in their shells on large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle breadcrumb mixture over. Broil until crumbs are golden, about 3 minutes. Transfer oysters in shells to plates. Serve with lemon wedges.
