Ingredients

  • 1 shallot, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 cup/125 ml red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup/95 g sugar
  • 24 oysters

Directions

Put the shallot, vinegar and sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook 5 minutes. Remove and cool. Transfer to a small bowl for serving. Open the oysters and loosen the muscles from the hinges. Arrange the oysters on the half shell on a platter and serve immediately, passing the pickled shallot for those who want it. A few lemon wedges for those who prefer their oysters' plain is a nice thought, too.
