Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup minced shallots
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped celery
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Large pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Rock salt
  • 2 dozen small (3 to 4 inches long) Pacific oysters on the half shell
  • Minced fresh flat-leaf parsley, for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small skillet, cook bacon until almost crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.

  2. Place the butter, shallots, bell pepper, celery, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper in a food processor; mix until well combined, about 20 seconds.

  3. Spread 1/4 inch rock salt on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes.

  4. Place oysters firmly in the hot rock salt. Place 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture on each oyster; top each with bacon. Bake oysters until bubbly, about 12 minutes. Do not overcook. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
