Heavenly Oysters

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by crispychick

My husband and I just got back from a trip down to the Florida Keys where we had this appetizer along the way. These are so simple and easy to do and wow are they good. I typically love thick cut bacon, but for this, I purposefully bought thin, center-cut bacon and I think it worked out nicely.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pint medium sized fresh oyster
  • 12 lb bacon
  • toothpick
  • vegetable oil (for deep frying)


  1. cut the bacon in half. take an oyster and wrap the bacon around it and secure it with a toothpick. repeat with remaining ingredients.
  2. heat your oil to 350 degrees or use a fry-daddy and working in batches, deep fry the oysters until the bacon looks done. this should take about 1-2 minutes. drain on paper towels and serve with condiment of your choice. cocktail sauce, dijon mustard (my fav), or hot sauce.
