Easy oysters kilpatrick


  1. Set oven to 180⁰C (fan) or 200⁰C (conventional).
  2. Prepare 2 serving plates or shallow bowls by placing a handful of rock salt in the centre of each - helps keep the oysters flat.
  3. Chop the bacon rasher into small rectangles (approx. 1cm x 0.5cm). To make it easy cut it into thin strips, then cut across the strips.
  4. Place the oysters on a baking tray. If they do not sit flat, spread another handful of rock salt across the tray to help position them.
  5. Lift each oyster to put just a few drops of Worcestershire sauce underneath each oyster, in its shell.
  6. Share the chopped bacon between the 12 oysters, spreading evenly across each oyster, so they are covered with bacon pieces.
  7. Sprinkle a little more Worcestershire Sauce on top of each bacon-covered oyster – it's up to you how strong you want it!
  8. Place baking tray in oven for 6-8 minutes, until the bacon is cooked and starting to brown.
  9. Remove the tray with the oyster shells from the oven, and transfer 6 oyster shells to each prepared plate. Use a cloth or tongs to pick them up as the shells will be hot.
  10. Sprinkle a couple more drops of Worcestershire sauce on top of each one to provide that fresh zing, and serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

  • Baking oysters kilpatrick is so easy, compared to the traditional grill method when they overcook so quickly you have to watch them constantly.
  • Lea & Perrins website states their Worcestershire sauce is gluten-free, but many other brands are not. Please check if it is important to you.
  • Oysters are a nutrient-rich superfood, but they are a riskier food for people with sensitive stomachs - get your oysters from a good fishmonger, and discard any that do not look and smell fresh.
