Oysters with Cucumber Mignonette

Cucumber Mignoette

These delights are a natural aphrodisiac and one delicious way to start off a romantic evening. We recommend serving them raw with a cucumber mignonette and a glass of chardonnay (which can also be used in the next course)

2 dozen Sewansecott oysters
1 cup rice wine vinegar
1 shallot, minced
1 small piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/2 cucumber, peeled and minced
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

- In a small bowl, combine the rice wine vinegar, shallot, ginger, cucumber, sugar and black pepper
- Mix with a fork
- Cover and set mignonette aside in the fridge for one day, allowing the flavors to fully combine together
- Shuck oysters and set over bed of crushed ice
- Pour a splash of mignonette over each oyster and enjoy!
