Oyster? Of course! For any occasion, oysters will give instant glam to your dinner/party…
The only real challenge with serving oysters at home, which I know can be a bit scary, is to shuck them. If you are unsure how to proceed, there is a very good video tutorial on Ricardocuisine.com where it is explained very clearly and simply. Just follow the steps in the video and you’ll be fine! Also, make absolutely sure that they are really tightly closed when you buy the An open oyster is a spoiled one and you REALLY don’t want to eat that ?.
This sauce/dressing is very quick and simple to make and requires very few ingredients.
After I took my pictures (taking food pictures is not my strong suit ?), I realized that the presentation is very important and that mine is not showcasing the oysters as they should. Actually, I was in a rush to eat them as an appetizer with my husband that night, that’s the problem with them, you just cannot wait to dig in…? However, I am sure you can find better ways to serve them for a total glam effect, the classier the better! I would love to see your own creative ways to showcase them, so please share yours with me!
