Directions

Chuck Hughes' bold Caesar salad topped with oyster croutons is an exceptional twist on an old classic.

For the salad: In a skillet, cook the bacon until crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside on paper towel to soak up the excess fat. 

For the dressing: Add the yolk, garlic, Dijon mustard, and anchovies, if using to a mortar and pestle, crush until a paste forms. Add the capers and blend well. Add oil slowly in a continuous stream, whisking until it emulsifies. Add lemon juice and half the Parmesan cheese. Alternately, you can combine these ingredients in a blender and slowly add the oil. Add a little water if the consistency is too thick. Season with pepper. Set aside. 

For the oyster croutons: Heat oil in a deep fryer to 360 degrees F. Remove the oysters from their shells and dredge in the flour. Fry oysters for 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and set aside on paper towel. 

For serving: In a large bowl, mix the romaine lettuce with the vinaigrette. Add the bacon and Parmesan. Garnish with the oyster croutons and serve.
