You know how the Hawthornes love their oysters.
We're still on our first bushel of these delectable bivalves.
I'm going with my version
of Oysters Casino today.
3 dozen oysters
4 pieces bacon, crisply fried
2 TB minced celery
1 TB minced red pepper
2 TB sliced scallions
3 TB chopped parsley
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
a few shakes of Texas Pete
4 TB butter, softened
Mince and chop and slice.
Smear celery, pepper, parsley, and scallions into butter.
Add lemon juice, Lea & Perrins, and Texas Pete.
Top each oyster with butter mixture
and sprinkle on bacon.
Under the broiler for 5 minutes,
or until butter is melted and oysters heated through.
We thoroughly enjoyed these.
Loved the buttery goodness
and the fresh flavor of the parsley,
the hint of lemon and L & P,
and a touch of heat.
And then there's the bacon.
Everything's better with bacon.
