Ingredients

  • 2 green onions

In a small bowl, stir onions with pepper, shallot and vinegar. Serve right away or cover and refrigerate up to a day. As close to serving time as possible, open oysters and discard top shells. Using an oyster shucker, detach oysters from bottom shells for easy eating. Fill a large shallow bowl with crushed ice, then place bowl on a serving tray. Nestle oysters with bottom shells into ice. Spoon about 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sauce over each oyster.
