Fresh Oysters with Pickled Cranberry Mignonette

Melissa Gayle
 ¼ cup Champagne vinegar
 1 tbsp minced shallot
 2 tbsp finely chopped fresh or frozen cranberries
 1 tsp honey
  tsp sea salt
  tsp freshly ground pepper
 1 dozen oysters, shucked

Make the mignonette: In a medium bowl, stir together the vinegar, shallot, cran­berries, honey, sea salt, and pepper. Taste and adjust
the seasoning, keeping in mind that you want mouth-­puckering tartness.


Serve over fresh oysters arranged on a bed of crushed ice and rock salt to keep them cold and fresh.

MAKE AHEAD The mignonette can be prepared up to three days in advance.
