Oysters with an Apple and Red Onion Mignonette

We have been enjoying a long weekend here. Today is WA day. Over the weekend we had friends around and enjoyed a wonderful meal, plenty of great local wines and late night games. Who knew UNO© at midnight could cause so much drama!!!!

I haven’t got any of the recipes from our dinner to share with you today as we were too busy eating and chatting to get photos. But I will be sharing the beef cheeks in red wine soon, as they were unbelievable. I was a little bit impressed with myself 😉

Today I am sharing a dish that is my own personal pleasure. No one else in my house enjoys this dish, but I think that is the same the world over. When it comes to oysters you either love them or hate them!

Today I am sharing a wonderful twist on the classic Mignonette Sauce. My version uses crispy juicy green apple and red onion to add a sweetness to the vinegar base.

We are so lucky down here in Herron, well Mandurah as we have a fabulous seafood truck that sells THE best seafood. They are reasonably priced, knowledgable and oh so helpful and friendly. I picked up these juicy oysters, came home, whipped up my dressing and demolished the lot, as a solitary treat. Personally I like to bite into my oysters rather than swallowing them whole. I like it that way and think if you swallow them whole you miss out on the flavour and briny hit!
