Oyster....and a redneck

So I was headed to the store to pick up stuff for brisket chili for lunch tomorrow and the calls and says she wants "cold shrimp" for supper. No time to steam and chill so I'll pick up some cooked at the counter. While I'm there, I decide to grab a couple dozen oysters since I've never grilled any. Mind you 500 miles from the nearest salt water, I ain't eatin em raw!

I've never shucked an oyster in my life, but how hard can it be? Searched the store high and low, no oyster knife, I'll figure it out.

Came home, start the chili, on to the oysters. Google has replaced, or at least came close, dogs as mans best friend. "How to shuck an oyster". 3 min 39 sec later, I'm a frickin expert! Now about that knife....

Well, we rednecks are an innovative bunch. Butter knife, non starter. Time to head to the shop....

added the oysters. When they started looking right, topped with garlic butter reduction and a piece of shrimp. Let that rock on the topped with grated asiago. Deeeeelish....
