Raw Oysters with Sweet Pear Mignonette

Serves 4 to 6
Time 15 min
Topped with sweet-tangy pickled pears, our spin on a classic seafood garnish, these raw oysters are elegant and refreshing. If you’re wary of shucking them yourself, oysters can be opened for you at the seafood counter.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 shallot very finely chopped (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons champagne vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/2 firm Asian or Bosc pear cut into very thin matchsticks
  • 12 raw oysters shucked
  • Crushed ice for serving
Method

In a medium bowl, whisk together shallot, vinegar, honey and salt. Add pear and toss gently to coat.

Nestle oysters in a rimmed platter filled with crushed ice, and spoon some of the pear mixture and pickling liquid onto each oyster in its half shell. Serve immediately.
