  • 1 packet (1 ounce) Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
  • 1 small fennel bulb finely diced

  • 2 tablespoons fennel tops minced
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 slices bacon cooked crisp, diced

  2. In a bowl, mix panko, olive oil, lemon juice, prepared dressing mix, fennel tops and bulbs, and bacon in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Drizzle each oyster with ½ teaspoon of bottled dressing. Grill oysters over medium coals, shell side down, for about 1½ minutes.
