    Oyster ideas?

    Have a ton of oysters to serve at an upcoming function. (served raw that is...no Rockefeller etc.) I like basic mignonette, but I'll need some more creative options. I'm kind of tired of the ubiquitous yuzu/uni etc. I refuse to kill them with cocktail sauce. I was thinking about pickling some things like cucumber, ginger, or peppers.....maybe some citrus. Any ideas?

    Where are they from and how long have they been out of the water?

    They'll be island creeks from Duxbury, MA. These are farmed oysters. Things go as planned they'll be pulled out of the water on the day of service.

    Those are ******* awesome oysters, and the island creek people are a pleasure to work with. I don't think they need a thing. Maybe some lemon.

    Also tbh its better if oyster hhave been out of water for up to 5 days in the perfect temperature. It increases quality of the oyster liquor inside .

    I like rhubarb mignonette and the rhubarb is available for me at least starting in late April early may. Not sure when the event is.

    Exactly. But I'm working with an expectation. Cuc granita is a nice idea.

    Rami - thanks for the link. My wife and I have fond memories dining at Tetsuya's during our only trip to Australia.
