• 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot
  • 2 tablespoons tequila (a good one)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Zest of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • Pinch of salt and pepper

Are you and oyster virgin, meaning “one who was never divulged on a succulent, salty oyster”. While most oyster purists, like myself, believe that oysters should be consumed unadorned, I do understand that there may still be some hesitation! So I’ll let this secret recipe slide just this one time.

The French make this fabulous sauce called a mignonette, if you look up the term it basically translates to a sauce made up of shallots, vinegar and seasoning. Sounds great right? Well let’s make it better…..tequila! So at your next oyster night give this tequila lime mignonette a try!

Yield: Sauce for 12 Oysters




Mix all together and serve along side fresh shucked oysters. Enjoy!
