Ingredients

  • 1/2 Cup champagne
  • 1/4 Cup champagne vinegar or white-wine vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 Cup shallots, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon smashed pink peppercorns
  • 2 dozen oysters shucked on the half-shell, placed on a bowl of ice

Directions

Place all ingredients in a small sauce pot, except oysters. Stir to dissolve sugar.
Bring to a boil and strain through a mesh strainer into a shallow bowl.
Place the bowl in the freezer overnight.
When oysters are ready, take granite out of freezer and using a fork, scrape the frozen mignonette — it should flake off easily. Place 1 teaspoon of frozen granite on top of each oyster and serve.

Oyster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
