  • 60 oysters on the half shell
  • 60 squares (1 inch each) of lean bacon


  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Each oyster should be loosened but left on the half shell.
  3. Spread a layer of rock salt over a baking sheet. Arrange the oysters, shell side down, on the rock salt. Cover each oyster with a square of bacon. Place the baking sheet under the broiler and cook briefly, until the bacon curls and becomes slightly crisp, about 2 m
