Baked Oysters with Chive Butter and Aïoli

Bryan Picard with a delicious recipe for baked oysters with chive butter and aïoli.
By Bryan Picard

Raw oysters on the half shell are quite the thing, but I also relish mine cooked. For this recipe, I filled the opened shells with chive butter (chives were the first to come up in the garden) and aïoli. The aïoli once heated becomes something between a holandaise and a creamy cheese. But you can also skip the baking and serve the oysters raw with the same ingredients. Either way, the flavours are terrific, so it’s up to you.
