Fresh Oysters with Pickled Cranberry Mignonette
In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we’re featuring what you would call “Not Your Grandmother’s Mignonette.” We hope you enjoy this pucker-inducing addition to the holiday table. Finally, there’s a cranberry sauce worth getting excited about on the Thanksgiving table.
- ¼ cup Champagne vinegar
- 1 tbsp minced shallot
- 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
- 1 tsp honey
- ⅛ tsp sea salt
- ⅛ tsp freshly ground pepper
- 1 dozen oysters, shucked
- In a medium bowl, stir together the vinegar, shallot, cranberries, honey, sea salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust the seasoning, keeping in mind that you want mouth-puckering tartness.
- Serve over fresh oysters arranged on a bed of crushed ice and rock salt to keep them cold and fresh.
