In a bowl combine Deep Roots Distillery Limoncello Liqueur, half (1/2 cup) grated parmesan, lemon zest, lemon juice, olive oil, grated garlic clove, chopped parsley, and salt
Mix well and taste for seasoning. Adjust as necessary.
Reserve for later. (You can add breadcrumbs or butter at this point if desired)
To prepare the oysters:
Preheat your oven to 400 F.
Carefully shuck the oysters, making sure both the bottom and top are disconnected from the shell.
Place the shucked oysters on a baking sheet lined with crumpled foil, this will keep the natural bine from spilling out of the oyster.
Add about a half tablespoon of the gremolata mixture to each oyster, top each oyster with remaining freshly grated parmesan.
Place the baking sheet of oyster in the oven, bake for about 10-15 min.
Remove and let cool for 1 minute, enjoy!
