'o' is for oyster



Six of my favorite things in life come together in this delicious recipe. There is nothing as good as the salty shock of freshness from the sea, the tang of vinegar and shallot, and the sweet fizz of Prosecco in one tasty bite.  The only thing better would be the salty shock of freshness from the sea, the tang of vinegar and shallot, and the sweet fizz of Prosecco in one tasty bite, which you eat while clad in Lanvin, riding a magic unicorn throughout Italy with your One True Love. Other than that, no.

Oysters With Prosecco Mignonette

Ingredients

2 tablespoons champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Prosecco
12 freshly shucked oysters on the half shell


Instructions

Place the vinegar, shallots, salt and pepper into a small, nonreactive bowl and stir to combine. Allow the mixture to sit for at least 15 minutes so flavors can meld. Just before serving, add the Prosecco. Spoon the mignonette over the oysters and serve. Drink remaining Prosecco. : )
