Our grandparents used to say "Only eat oysters in months with the letter R". We like to eat oysters all the time.....
We shucked the oysters and enjoyed them fresh paired with a mignonette made with:
- 2 tablespoons of Vulcano or Ginger (for a more pungent, exotic flavor)
- 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
- 1/2 teaspoon puréed ginger
- 1 pinch Omnivore Salt
If you are intimated by shucking oysters, place them cupped side down on the grill, covered with aluminum foil. Grill the oysters until they begin to open (about 4 minutes), let cool slightly and then, keeping them cupped side down and retaining as much liquid as possible, serve them paired with Omnivore Vulcano (to add a little kick), or with Vulcano Ginger (if you want to get creative).
