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.
- 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
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.
