NZ Pacific Oysters with raspberry mignonette granite

Details

Makes enough for approx 3- 4 dozen

Method

Work raspberries through a mesh sieve with a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula to remove the seeds. (You should have about 2 tablespoons of purée.)

In a small bowl, combine raspberry purée with vinegar, shallots, and pepper. Season with a pinch of salt. Pour into a small container and freeze for at least 8 hours, stirring once or twice with a fork.

Loosen the oysters from the shell but leaving them in the shell for ease of eating.

To Serve

Spoon about 1 teaspoon of granité onto each oyster and serve. Keep additional mignonette granité in the freezer to top oysters as needed.

Chef's Note

This recipe makes more than enough mignonette granité (possibly enough for 3-4 dozen), however since it is a frozen product it can be stored frozen for future use.
