  • Stir butter, sriracha sauce, garlic, green onions, cilantro, and lime juice together in a bowl.

  • Bake oysters in the preheated oven until they open slightly, about 10 minutes.

  • Remove the top shell of the oysters using a towel and an oyster knife, being careful not to spill the liquor. Gently cut the muscles that attach the oysters to the shell.

  • Divide the butter mixture among the oysters, placing a dollop on each. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

  • Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven’s broiler.

  • Broil oysters in the preheated oven until butter melts and Parmesan cheese is golden brown, about 5 minutes.
