Oysters kilpatrick


  • 24 fresh oysters on the shell
  • Rock salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 30 g butter
  • 4 rashers bacon, rind removed, finely diced
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Arrange the oysters on a bed of rock salt in a large, shallow, heatproof dish.
  2. Combine the Worcestershire sauce and butter in a small saucepan. Heat until the butter melts and the mixture begins to bubble around the edges of the saucepan. Remove from the heat.
  3. Spoon a little Worcestershire sauce and butter mixture over each oyster. Top evenly with the diced bacon and season with sea salt and pepper. Cook under a preheated grill for 2–3 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and golden.
