Move oven rack 6 inches away from the element and set oven to broil.


In a large skillet over medium heat, sauté Pancetta until is begins to give up fat, add shallot and red pepper flake; continue the sauté an additional 2 minutes.


Place oysters on a rimmed baking sheet filled with Rock salt or Kosher Salt to keep them steady.


Divide Pancetta mixture equally among the oysters.


Broil for about 3 minutes until the pancetta is brown and crispy.


Remove pan from broiler and divide red pepper equally between the oysters.


Divide the Panko between the oysters


Finally, divide the Parmigiano-Reggiano between the oysters.


Return oysters to the broiler and heat until cheese has browns, about 2 minutes.


Remove broiler and transfer to a platter. (You may need tongs for this as the shells will be REALLY hot.

Notes

This is a great alternative to just baking the oysters in their shell. Don't get me wrong, I love oysters baked in the shell and dipped in butter, but sometimes ya gotta mix it up a little. This is great as an appetizer for 4, a light main course for 2 or a serious shellfish binge for 1 (that would be me)

Oh Yummm
Printed this out for when my hubbie goes out of town!!
He's not a seafood lover! Thanks!

A dash of local for every season
