The classic appetizer combines surf and turf in a most delicious way
- 12 ounces thawed oysters
- ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 10 strips of bacon (pastured pork or wild salmon), cut in thirds
- Place an oyster on each piece of bacon and sprinkle with parsley and lemon pepper. Wrap bacon around oyster and secure with a toothpick.
- Place oysters on a broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches from source of heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Turn carefully. Broil 4 to 5 minutes longer or until bacon is crisp. Note: If you use wild salmon bacon, watch it carefully to avoid overcooking.
