  • 12 freshly shucked Sydney Rock or Pacific oysters
  • 2 lemons
  • Rock salt for serving
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chardonnay vinegar
  • Salt flakes and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
  • 2 golden shallots, very finely diced
  • \u00bd cup mirin
  • \u00bc cup rice vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons wasabi paste
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, seeded and finely diced
  • 1\u00bd tablespoons pickled ginger


  1. The traditional way: freshly shucked natural oysters served chilled in a half-shell on a bed on rock salt. A squeeze of lemon and a little black pepper is a simple and classic dish.
  2. Shallot Vinaigrette: if you want to dress up your oysters, try combining oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and shallots to serve with your oysters.
  3. Wasabi Dressing: For something a little more fancy, combine mirin, vinegar, wasabi and cucumber. Lift oysters out of their shells, divide cucumber salad between shells and place oysters on top. Garnish with a little pickled ginger and serve.
