Ingredients

  • ⅔ cup champagne vinegar or white-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced shallots
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper, or more to taste
  • 24 small-to-medium oysters in the half-shell

Instructions

  • To prepare sauce: Combine vinegar, shallot and pepper in a glass or stainless-steel bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
  • Transfer the oysters in the bottom shell to a bed of crushed ice, rock salt or crumpled foil that will keep them level. Serve immediately, with about ¼ teaspoon mignonette sauce per oyster.
