Broiled Oysters with Bourbon Brown Sugar Butter
2 dozen in-shell oysters, freshly shucked
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 tablespoon chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, finely chopped
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
2 teaspoons bourbon
4 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
1. Mix garlic, chipotle pepper, brown sugar, butter, and bourbon in a small bowl until smooth.
2. Heat broiler. Arrange shucked oysters on a rimmed baking sheet. Use coarse kosher salt underneath to level and stabilize each shell. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon butter mixture onto each oyster.
3. Broil oysters until butter mixture is melted and sugar is beginning to caramelize, about 3 minutes.
4. Serve and enjoy!
