Oysters Kilpatrick

At the moment we are getting some nice oysters here in Melbourne from across the Tasman and they are also at a good price. Needless to say with them being on an "extra" special the other day and Noel's birthday, we purchase not just one dozen but two!!

Personally I prefer to eat them cold, especially Oysters with Vietnamese Dressing, but my mam likes them cooked. So deciding to do one dozen the way I like them and for the first time I made Oysters Kilpatrick with the other dozen. I must say very very easy to put to together and cook.

I actually have to say that the easiest way I have found to cook or even prepare oysters for topping them is to use a pattycake tin - this allows me to individually stand the oysters the best I can considering the shells are all shapes and sizes. It's not the prettiest way to serve them mind you but it gets the job done!!

Oysters Kilpatrick

Makes 12
Points per serve: 0.5

1 dozen oysters
1 rasher of bacon, fat trimmed
1 tablespoon Worchestershire Sauce

Clean and rinse oysters. (I find it easier to remove them completely from the shells, rinse and drain in a sieve and then return them to their shells.)

Finely dice bacon rasher and sprinkle evenly over the oysters. Top with the Worchestershire sauce again dividing evenly amongst the oysters.

Place under a hot grill for approximately 5 minutes.

Serve immediately.

Here is my mam enjoy the oyster feast along with a glass of wine!!

Hi Jo,
I think this is a special one..using bacon? But oyster in Singapore is not cheap, will give a try one day.
