¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons Sherry wine
⅛ teaspoon pepper
24 medium oysters, fresh or frozen
24 canned water chestnuts, drained
12 slices bacon, cut in half
Preheat broiler or oven to 500°. Blend soy sauce, Sherry and pepper. Drain oysters and dry on paper toweling. Put oysters and water chestnuts in a bowl with the sauce and turn several times to coat. Wrap an oyster and water chestnut with a bacon slice and secure with a wooden pick. Broil, turning occasionally, 4 inches from the flame until bacon is crisp – watch carefully to prevent overcooking. Rumakis can be kept warm at the table on a cocktail-size hibachi.
Recipe makes 8 servings for 3 rumakis per person at approximately 120 calories per serving.
HELPFUL HINT: This appetizer makes a gala first course for any party meal. Other seafood, such as scallops, shrimp or lobster, can be substituted for the oysters.
