Let's get grilling

1 Check to see if the oysters are alive by confirming that shells are tightly closed; discard any that are not tightly closed. Scrub oysters with a stiff brush under running water. Rinse well and refrigerate until ready to grill.
2 In a small bowl, beat together the softened butter, miso, Sriracha and lime juice with a spoon. Add a few grinds of black pepper and set aside in the fridge.
3 Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling using Kingsford® Original Charcoal, and preheat to 450°F.
4 Pry oyster shells apart with an oyster knife. Discard the top shell and loosen the oyster meat with the tip of the oyster knife.
5 Leave the oysters in the bottom shells and place oysters directly over coals with their deeply curved half shells facing upward; grill for approximately 3 minutes.
6 Top each oyster with approximately 1/2 teaspoon of spicy miso butter; using a bit more for larger oysters, and a bit less for smaller ones. Place oysters back on grill for an additional 3 minutes. For your safety, please reference the USDA safe cooking temperatures.

Serve in the half shell with the scallions scattered over the top and a sprinkled with few good pinches of togarashi. Serve with lime wedges.
