The video today is all about oysters – er, maybe more about eating them. Grab a bunch of friends, something to drink, and a bushel or two of oysters. It’s an eat outdoors-in your coat- not in fancy clothes kind of party that’s sure to leave you smiling! Roasting oysters (over a large grill) (because I prefer them roasted . . .)

  • Prepare the grill (charcoal is best)
  • Put oysters on the cooking surface in a single layer, ideally belly-side down
  • Cover the grill (or cover the oysters with wet burlap)
  • Cook for 20 minutes, or until the shell opens
  • EAT!

My favorite sauce – MIGNONETTE (a vinegar sauce that’s like a more complex lemon squeeze)

  • ½ c finely minced shallots
  • ¼ c plain rice wine vinegar
  • ¼ c white vinegar
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and let sit at least 4 hours in the fridge to meld the flavors. This makes a ton – you could use any leftover as a nice base for a salad dressing.
