Total Cost: 9d

Ingredients:
- 1 dozen large oysters
- 3 rashers of bacon
- Pepper
- Salt
- Lime juice

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to the desired temperature (which can vary depending on your oven) and prepare a baking sheet.

2. In a small bowl, mix together some pepper, salt, and lime juice. This mixture will serve as a marinade for the oysters.

3. Place the oysters in the marinade, ensuring that they are well-coated. Allow them to sit for a few minutes to absorb the flavors.

4. While the oysters marinate, prepare the bacon. Cut the rashers of bacon into thin strips, approximately 1 inch wide and 3 inches long.

5. Roll up each strip of bacon and thread it onto a skewer, alternating with an oyster. Continue this process until the skewer is full, ensuring that each skewer has a balance of bacon and oysters.

6. Place the skewers on the prepared baking sheet and transfer it to the preheated oven. Cook for approximately 10 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the oysters are cooked through.

7. While the oysters and bacon cook, prepare a hot serving dish by warming it up.

8. Once the oysters and bacon are cooked, carefully slide them off the skewers onto the hot serving dish.

9. Serve the oysters and bacon immediately while still hot. They can be enjoyed as an appetizer, a main course, or even as a side dish.
