Chef Aaron Silverman of Rose's Luxury in Washington, DC, tops freshly shucked oysters with a sweet, spicy granita that's made with just apple juice, fresh wasabi and a dot of green food coloring. He loves using supersmall, superclean Kushi oysters from British Columbia, but if they're unavailable, other small oysters from the Pacific Northwest will be equally delicious. Slideshow:  More Recipes With Oysters
