OYSTERS WITH TWO SIMPLE MIGNONETTES

RECIPES

After sharing several oyster posts this past year, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Mike and I are saying farewell to 2017 with a slurp. Whether we’re traveling to places like Swan Oyster Depot in San Francisco or L’Ecume Saint-Honoré in Paris or simply having a low key night at home, oysters always have a place at our table. Since it’s new years eve, I decided to pick up a bunch of Kumamotos from Whole Foods and share two simple mignonettes that are both refreshing and celebratory.

Chilled Cava Mignonette

This Chilled Cava Mignonette is a simple twist to a traditional mignonette. What’s the twist? You’re adding Cava or the sparkling wine of your choice. There’s plenty of bubbles to go around this time of year, so sip and slurp?

Sweet and Spicy Lime Mignonette

The second recipe is this Sweet and Spicy Lime Mignonette that tastes just as refreshing as it sounds. The kick from the serrano pepper is a nice combination of sweet and spicy. But, if spice isn’t your thing, leave out the serrano. It’s flavorful without the spice too.

Cats Eye Pottery

I also want to point out the gorgeous plate I used in this shoot. Did you look at those details? It’s handcrafted by Jenny from Cats Eye Pottery on Etsy.

Jenny has a background in painting and drawing, but her craft has evolved into pottery. She loves the art of shaping an ordinary ball of clay into something functional and using stamps, drawing and painting to bring it to life. I have been impressed with her work for quite a while, because she has an natural ability to balance function with beauty. Be sure to check out her website and her Etsy shop.

    These mignonettes are like best friends to oysters – they amp up the flavor rather than overcoming them. SO delicious, and super beautiful as always!
