I have always had a passion for seafood. Of all the different ways to serve oysters from fresh in the shell, deep fried in a lovely crisp tempura batter or a tornado with tomato juice, tobasco and a healthy shot of vodka, the list is endless but an old favourite has always been Kilpatrick Oysters. Of all the variations of the classic this recipe has to be my favourite. Start out by finding some beautiful fresh oysters. It takes no time at all to prepare the sauce. You start by finely slicing your bacon and add to a mixing bowl. In the same bowl put in a good dose of worchestershire sauce and there you have your basic Kilpatrick mix which is nice enough as it is but for that wow factor to your oysters you need to add a few more flavours. To your bacon and worchestershire mixture add a similiar amount of ketjap manis (sweet soy) then throw in about half that dose of tomato sauce and the same of barbeque and give it all a good mix (i'm not giving exact measurements because once you have tried it your goning to want more and more), now all thats left is a few drops of tobasco and a little seasoning (salt and pepper). Now you have your delectable mixture, spread your oysters out on a tray, a little bit of rock salt helps them to stand up nice and straight. Spoon a generous amount onto each oyster and pop the tray under your grill (if you don't have one placing it into the oven works just aswell) and cut yourself a few nice slabs of fresh bread, pour a glass of wine and wait till you start to get a bit of colour on the edges of your bacon bits and serve them up. Once again rock salt does the trick to keep them upright.
A little wedge of lemon or two for and devour these lovely morsels before everyone else does.
