Low carb recipe for Oysters en Brochette which belongs to the Fish and Seafood recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 16 large oysters
  2. 6 slices bacon
  3. 24 mushrooms
  4. Butter (optional)
  5. Lemon wedges (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the broiler.

You'll either need metal skewers for this or you'll need to think far enough ahead to put 6 bamboo skewers in water to soak for a few hours before you begin cooking.

Either way, simply skewer a slice of bacon near the end and then skewer a mushroom.

Fold the strip of bacon back over, skewering it again, add an oyster, and fold and skewer the bacon again?you're weaving the bacon in and out of the alternating mushrooms and oysters, see? Lay the skewers on a broiler pan and broil them close to the heat with the broiler on low for about 10 minutes.

Turn once or twice until the oysters are done and the bacon's getting crisp.

You can baste these with butter while they're broiling if you like, but it's not strictly necessary.

Serve one skewer per person as a first course, with lemon wedges if you like.
