Oysters with a Classic Mignonette Recipe
Dress these oysters to impress with mignonette
Here's the scenario: You've got a girl coming over, oysters and champagne on ice. Damn, you're a lucky guy. It's about to get even better, because not only did you shuck your own oysters (probably best to do this before she arrives), but you've made a delicious sauce to help those oysters go down smoothly, following this Classic Mignonette recipe. Chances are, you're closing this deal.
Note on vinegar: The traditional mignonette, that tangy vinegar mixture above, is made with red wine vinegar. Since I mentioned Champagne you should know that you can also use Champagne vinegar.
