Oysters with Cocktail Sauce

Cold water makes good oysters, and in winter, they're at their plump, luscious best. West Coast varieties, such as Kumamotos and Olympias, have a creamy sweetness we can't resist.


  • Prepared horseradish
  • Ketchup
  • Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Oysters on the half shell

How to Make It

  1. In a bowl (size depends on amount you're making), whisk together horseradish, ketchup, and lemon juice until blended.

  2. Serve as a topping for oysters.
