Servings 4 people


  • Oyster Knife
  • Metal Backing Pan
  • Shellfish Rack (optional)
  • Outdoor Grill


  • 1 dozen Fresh Oysters large
  • 2 tbsp Tart Berry Jam gooseberry, wild blueberry, boysenberry, blackberry, black currant, or red currant
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Ginger minced
  • 2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Mirin, Sake or Cream of Sherry
  • 2 tbsp Seasoned Rice Vinegar
  • Kosher Salt required if you are not using a shellfish rack


  • Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to high.
  • Shuck the oysters and loosen from the bottom shell. Try not to spill the juices! Set the oysters in a shellfish rack or in a metal baking pan filled with kosher salt so the oysters stand upright. Discard the top shell.
  • Place a small spoonful (between 1/4 and 1/2 teaspoon) of berry jam in each oyster. Add a small spoonful of chopped ginger, followed by a few drops of soy sauce, mirin, and vinegar.
  • Place shellfish rack on the grill until the juices and sauce bubble and the oyster is cooked, 4 to 6 minutes.
