Here’s a scaled-down oyster roast to serve at your next small celebration. You can double or triple the recipe for a larger crowd. To replicate the open fire, add a pinch of smoked paprika, or in the cream cheese topping, replace the hot sauce with chipotle pepper in adobo sauce. There’s an art to shucking oysters—if you would like to leave that task to someone else, think about ordering the oysters ahead of time and asking your fishmonger to shuck them for you.
