DIRECTIONS

  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until crisp, about 8 minutes.
  • Add the onions, salt, and cayenne and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and butter, and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes until the butter melts.
  • Add the flour and, stirring slowly and constantly, cook for 2 minutes.
  • Add the milk and wine and stir to blend.
  • Reduce the heat to medium, then add the mushrooms and shrimp.
  • Stir and fold to mix and cook until the mixture is very thick, about 12 minutes.
  • Add the lemon juice, green onions, and parsley and stir to mix well.
  • Remove from the heat, add the beaten egg yolks, and blend well.
  • Let cool to room temperature.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Arrange the reserved oyster shells on a bed of rock salt in 4 pie pans or on a large baking sheet.
  • Put an oyster in each shell and top it with about 2 heaping tablespoons of the sauce.
  • Or, the oysters can be put in a shallow pan (without the shells and rock salt) and topped with the sauce to bake.
  • Bake until the sauce is delicately browned and the oysters begin to curl at the edges, about 20 minutes.
  • Serve hot.
