Fried oyster by leader6


									One of the two marine groups into which shellfish are categorized. A second group is
crustaceans. Mollusks are characterized by having a hard shell that consists of one or two pieces
which contains a soft body. The mollusks have two sub-classifications, which are univalves and
bivalves. The univalves have one shell, which include shellfish such as abalone, conch, snails,
and squid. The bivalves have two half shells, which include shellfish such as clams, mussels,
oysters, and scallops.

Beware if the scallops are all of exactly uniform size and shape. This is an indication the producer may
have cut out the scallops from larger, less tender deep sea scallops or even shark, much like one would use
a cookie-cutter. Check Labels and manufacturers.

Oysters Kilpatrick

Oysters Kilpatrick can be made in one of 2 ways. To begin you need to make the Kilpatrick sauce which is
1 part Tomato Sauce to 1 part Worcestershire Sauce which is throughly mixed together. The next step is to
finely dice bacon into small pieces which is then placed over the raw oysters. Once the bacon pieces are
placed over the oysters quite generously, then pour the Kilpatrick sauce over the top of the oysters and
bacon. Now the oysters can be placed in a oven proof frying pan with a stable base for the oysters and
baked at a moderate temperate (180 degrees Celcius) until the oysters are firm to the touch and bacon is
crispy. The oysters can also be placed in a tray under a grill with a high heat until firm and bacon is crispy.
Serve the Kilpatrick oysters with either lemon wedges or additional Kilpatrick sauce
