Bruny Island oysters with a chilli and ginger dressing


Bruny Island oysters with a chilli and ginger dressing.
First things first. You need to be on Bruny Island. Then there is this awesome little joint halfway to the South Island called “Get Shucked” and even cooler it’s a drive through, so you don’t have to get out of the car. The ingredient was so fresh that no cooking or other ingredients are required however that doesn’t make for an interesting blog. So we got 2 dozen, we had the first dozen as an entree, au natural. OMG!! We were both absolute that they were the best, freshest, plumpest and creamiest oysters we had ever eaten. I said “Get Shucked” after every oyster, so I take it that’s how the oyster joint got its name.
Main Course was just a little tweak to an oyster that’s worthy of telling you about, I cant quite remember where I got this idea of a recipe most likely naked chef by Jamie Oliver but it’s kind of dressing the oyster as you might dress a salad. So this dressing was chilli and ginger. There are no photos due to the fact that Christobel cut all the ingredients, picture this, what would a shallot look like if you cut it using a chainsaw, chilli same.

12 Bruny Island oysters
1 large chilli (finely diced)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
1-2 shallots (very finely diced)
2 tbl rice wine vinegar
½ tsp sugar
A dash of soy sauce
A dash of sesame oil

Combine all the ingredients into a bowl whisk lightly, you want the oil and liquids to pearl rather than emulsify, spoon over oyster and eat at once.
