Oyster And Bacon Appetizer

admin's picture
  Oysters 12
  Thin bacon slices 12 Small
  Paprika/Cayenne pepper To Taste
  Chopped shallots/Chopped onion 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped parsley 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Lemon juice 1 Tablespoon
  Fried bread rounds/4 slices of toast 12 Small

Beard the oysters, trim the bacon, cutting each piece just large enough to roll round an oyster, season with paprika or cayenne pepper, sprinkle on a little shallot and parsley.
Lay an oyster on each, add a few drops of lemon juice, roll up tightly and secure the bacon in position with a fine skewer.
Cook in a frying-pan, under the grill or in a hot oven (425° F., Gas 7), just long enough to crisp the bacon (further cooking would harden the oysters), remove the skewers and serve on the croutes.
