Angels on Horseback


  • 24 oysters in their shells
  • 24 slices of smoked bacon
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper

  • Preparation:

    1. Shuck oysters by inserting the blade of a blunt ended knife between the shells and working it in until you cut the muscle that holds the shells together.
    2. Catch the oyster liquid in a bowl and discard shells. Strain the oyster liquid and put it into a pan along with the oysters. Bring to a boil over gentle heat, simmer very gently for two minutes, then drain.
    3. Trim bacon and stretch the slices by pressing with the back of a spoon Sprinkle oysters with a little lemon juice and pepper. Roll each oyster up in a bacon slice and thread them onto skewers.
    4. Broil until the bacon is crisp and sizzling, turning half way through so both sides are cooked. Push off skewers and serve with cocktail picks.
