Oysters with Mignonette

Yield
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.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Oysters on the half shell

How to Make It

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together champagne vinegar, lemon juice, horseradish, shallots, and sugar.

  2. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve as a topping for oysters.
