Why I Love This Recipe

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)

Ingredients You'll Need

18 oysters; Shucked with large shell reserved
12 oz Pancetta, chopped
1 Shallot; minced
1 tsp crushed red pepper flake
1 Small jar of Roasted Red peppers; Drained and dried and chopped
1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano; Grated
1/2 cup Panko
1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley, chopped
Juice of 1 – 2 lemons


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.

Sprinkle platter with chopped parsley and lemon juice.
