BATON ROUGE - A local restaurant shared a bacon-wrapped oyster recipe good enough for any Saints fan.

JK Lockhart from Lava Cantina cooked bacon-wrapped oysters.  He then fried the oysters in tempura batter and topped it off with a remoulade sauce.

To make the dish, these ingredients are needed:

  • 6 shucked Louisiana oysters
  • 3 strips of applewood smoked bacon

Lockhart reccommended to wrap each shucked oyster in 1/2 strip of bacon, and skewer each wrapped oyster with a toothpick so bacon stays on.
Next, dunk the bacon wrapped oysters in tempura batter mixture, and make sure the entire oyster is coated in batter.
Lockhart then said to immediately roll each oyster in cornmeal breading mixture, and make sure each oyster is fully coated.
Then, fry them at 350 degrees for half a minute, or until the oysters turn golden brown and the bacon becomes crispy.
Last, Lockhart said to drain the grease onto a napkin and serve immediately with remoulade sauce.

The Super Fans also joined in with Lockhart to tell WBRZ about Lava Cantina's "Saints Night Out" with Saints wide receiver, Joe Morgan, coming up this Monday. Fans can win a VIP night out experience with a saints player and The Super Fans by liking Lava Cantina on Facebook and joining the event.

Two winners will be selected, but the public is welcomed to come to the event for great eats, autographs, photos and Saints memorabilia giveaways.
