Oysters with Vietanamese Dressing

Christmas dinner starter maybe?

Thursday, December 30, 2010

12 oysters, shucked and cleaned

Crushed ice to serve

For the dressing

1 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp fish sauce

1 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp caster sugar

Thumbsized piece of ginger, finely grated

1 red chilli, seeded, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

1/2 shallot, finely sliced

A small handful of Coriander, finely chopped

Juice of 1/2 a lime

Serves 4

These are a truly elegant addition to any party spread. Oysters are always a talking point that can split any group of party goers, it’s like marmite you either love them or hate them. I’m a huge fan of the salty fresh flavors and would normally eat them with just a little Tabasco sauce, but I find to entice first time oyster eaters, this delicious Vietnamese dressing does the trick!

Whisk together all the ingredients for a dressing and transfer to little serving bowls with spoons.
Pour the crushed ice into a roasting tin and push the dressing bowls into the ice so they are sitting on top.
Arrange the shucked oysters on the ice and serve each oyster with a little drop of dressing before you slurp them down!
