  1. Rinse the oysters in a colander and drain well.
  2. Roast the oysters in their shells in a large pot over medium high heat until they are done and dry, but not scorched.
  3. Remove the oysters from the shell onto a plate, without any of their liquor. Discard any oysters that failed to open.
  4. Add the butter. When the butter has melted, add to another pan and place on low heat.
