Ingredients

  • 6 fingers bread
  • 2 oz (50 g) butter
  • 6 oysters
  • Lemon juice
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 3 rashers streaky bacon, halved

Method

Fry the bread lightly in butter, then keep hot. Trim the beards from the oysters, sprinkle with lemon juice and cayenne and roll each in half a rasher of bacon. Fry quickly in butter just long enough to cook the bacon, turning the rolls so that they are cooked on all sides. This should take only about 2 minutes, during which time the bacon protects the oysters, so that they are not overcooked. Place one roll on each piece of fried bread and serve immediately.
