Oysters on the Half Shell with Rosé Mignonette

  • TOTAL TIME: 10 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8
  • FAST
  • HEALTHY

Great oysters are delicious "naked," as Island Creek founder Skip Bennett says, but sometimes chef Jeremy Sewall dresses them up with a mignonette (vinegar sauce) like this one, made with sparkling rosé.

  1. 1/2 cup sparkling rosé
  2. 2 shallots, minced
  3. 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  4. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  5. 2 dozen oysters, shucked
  6. Shaved ice, for serving
  1. In a bowl, combine the rosé, shallots, vinegar and pepper. Arrange the oysters on a bed of ice and serve with the mignonette
Make Ahead The mignonette can be refrigerated for up to 6 hours. Serve chilled.

Suggested Pairing

The freshness of raw oysters is a terrific match for effervescent sparkling wine. To go with this rosé mignonette, pour a sparkling rosé like the wild strawberry–scented Raventós i Blanc de Nit Cava from Spain.
