Angels on Horseback


  • 1 dozen shucked oysters
  • 6 slices of thin sliced bacon, cut in half crosswise
  • juice from 2 lemons
  • kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste
This is delicious recipe that wraps thin sliced bacon around oysters and places them under a broiler or over charcoal. This recipe gains its genesis in the UK. It is a perfect bite.

  • Pre-cook the bacon, half way.
  • Place the oysters along with their liquor in a bowl and squeeze lemon juice over.
  • Allow to marinate for at least 10 minutes.
  • Season oysters with a dash of kosher salt and fresh pepper.
  • Wrap each oyster in a piece of bacon and secure with a tooth pick.
  • Set the oysters on a baking sheet and place under the broiler.
  • Cook turning occasionally for about 8 minutes until the bacon is browned and the edges start to curl.
  • Alternatively you may cook the oysters over a charcoal file, turning  frequently, until edges on bacon curl.
  • Serve as is or on crusty bread or in oyster shells.
