Time for Oysters & Guinness
Post Sponsored by Guinness US
Get that fire started!
Did you know that Guinness and oysters is one of the oldest food pairings in the world. The first recorded mention of this dynamic duo is from 1837! So you have to believe me when I say that my Oysters Kilpatrick with Guinness are perfect.
Truth is that these two make a mighty fine couple because they compliment each other on the palate. Oysters have a raw, natural & salty flavor that makes them good when eaten right from the ocean or cooked over fire. Guinness is malty, subtly sweet and rich. These two combined complete a full range of flavor!
You ready for Oysters & Guinness?
My Oysters Kilpatrick recipe is a twist on grilling oysters over fire. While some might prefer oysters uncooked, I think that this recipe will open their minds. Packed with a zesty and herbal sauce, these Oysters Kilpatrick are grilled over the fire and then topped with Irish cheddar and bacon. What is not to love about that?
Lastly, you just need to pour yourself a pint of Guinness and grab some lemon wedges. I even add a little bit more hot sauce on top of my Oysters Kilpatrick since the Guinness will help wash the heat down. All in all, this is an awesome Irish recipe. Great for cooking any time of the year! Try it this holiday season as an appetizer at your party. You will not be disappointed.
