1 teaspoon minced scallion greens

2 teaspoons minced celery

3 teaspoons Green Chartreuse

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 teaspoon minced shallots

Pinch of cayenne pepper

1 bacon slice

20 oysters, scrubbed and shucked


  1. 1. Cook bacon to well done and pat dry. Mince it.
  2. 2. Combine all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir and salt to taste. The liquid should be strong, as it will mix with the "liquor" inside of the oyster.
  3. 3. Spoon a few drops of the liquid onto freshly shucked oysters, served in the half shell. Garnish with fresh parsley.
