Chili Lime Gin Oyster Recipe
Summer is the season for eating fresh oysters near the water. For casual occasions you can't beat the old natural oyster with a squeeze of lemon. However if you're entertaining you might want to spice things up a little. The fresh chilli and ice cold gin in this marinade should be more than enough to do the trick.
Recipe by: Paul Hegeman
INGREDIENTS:1 lime juiced1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest1 shot gin1/2 teaspoon ginger finely chopped1 teaspoon mirin1 teaspoon white sugar1/2 chill pepper finely chopped2 dozen oysters
METHODStep 1Place all the above ingredients in a jar, cover with lid and shake vigorously.
Step 2Take teaspoon and drizzle small amount over each oyster just before serving.For a more intense flavour; spoon over oysters one hour before serving.
Note that this recipe is intended to have a fair bit of kick, if it is too spicy remove the seeds from the chilli before chopping, alternatively if it is too alcoholic hold back on half the gin.
