Wasabi Oysters with Sweet Fennel



    1. Mix softened butter with wasabi paste, one chopped clove of garlic and black pepper to taste. Put dollops on each of the 8 prepared oysters and then let sit in the refrigerator while preparing fennel. Mix sake, brown sugar, soy sauce, the remaining garlic and some pepper in a small bowl. Pour over sliced fennel.
    2. Have grill on medium heat and place the fennel on the grill first for a few minutes or so until you have some nice grill marks. Then turn and brush with the marinade.
    3. Place the prepared oysters on the half shell on the grill. Let cook until the oysters look done and the butter has melted. Take off grill and place on platter lined with rock salt garnish with fresh herbs and cherry tomatoes. Take fennel off grill and place on a platter, sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.
