Citizens, TFD’s secret Summer lair is located in the gorgeous city of San Francisco, the one place in the world where the sunny months are very cool (TFD despises the heat!) and the food is spectacular! Some of the finest oysters in the world are actually from Tomales Bay, not more than 90 minutes drive from the City.
Tomales Bay is also the home of a most unusual preparation of the prince of bivalves – the barbecued oyster! Yes, oyster purists insist on raw. Lightly grilled over live fire is an epiphany, at least in my book – especially when doused with garlic butter and a flavorful BBQ sauce!
The first oysters prepared in this manner were probably made at Tony’s restaurant in Marshall, CA more than 50 years ago. BBQ oyster nirvana remains centered in that small town, where Tony’s and Hog Island Oyster Company vie for the title of grillmasters supreme!
Citizens, this recipe is a well-harmonized umami and spice duet, including a touch of liquid smoke, horseradish, fish sauce, and Chinese chili sauce as well as including Chinese black vinegar and even a bit of bourbon! Try this recipe, and know My true glory!
