    Serves 4

    2 tablespoons minced shallots
    8 saffron threads
    2 slices bacon, cut into 1/4-inch dice
    1 leek, thinly sliced

    Combine the wine, shallots, and saffron in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat and simmer gently until the liquid is reduced by half.
    Meanwhile, cook the bacon in an 8-inch skillet until it is crispy, then pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat. Add the leeks to the bacon and gently cook until softened.
    Add the bacon mixture to the reduced wine. Add the cream, butter, and the liquor from the oysters and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. Add the oysters and simmer until they just begin to curl, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and garnish with paprika. Serve hot.

    Use Shucked Oysters
