New Zealand Pacific Oysters with prosciutto citrus brioche crumble

New Zealand Pacific Oysters with prosciutto citrus brioche crumble

Makes enough crumble for approx 2 dozen oysters

Ingredients

24 New Zealand Pacific Oysters - half shell
130gms (4.5oz) Brioche (stale) – crumbled
2 Lemons – fine zest & juice
1 tablespoon Unsalted Butter
2 slices Prosciutto – finely diced (see chef's note)
1 teaspoon Fresh Fennel – finely chopped
1 teaspoon Fresh Italian Parsley – finely chopped
to taste Fresh ground black pepper
Chef's Note:
Prosciutto can be substituted with quality belly bacon or even ham. Poaching maintains the moisture & plumps the oyster up slightly – the crumble is a tasty colorful option that also offers texture.
