1 medium onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup butter, cubed
9 ounces fresh spinach, torn
1 cup grated Romano cheese
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds kosher salt
3 dozen fresh BBQ Oysters in the shell, washed
Lemon wedges, for serving
In a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Add spinach; cook and stir until wilted. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese, lemon juice and pepper.
Spread kosher salt into 2 ungreased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Shuck oysters, reserving oyster and its liquid in bottom shell. Lightly press oyster shells down into the salt, using salt to keep oysters level. Top each with 2-1/2 tsp. spinach mixture.
Bake, uncovered, at 450° until oysters are plump, 6-8 minutes. Garnish with lemon wedges and serve immediately.
Variations: Top with cooked bacon, breadcrumbs or chopped parsley.
