Chili Lime Gin Oyster Recipe

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

1 lime juiced
1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
1 shot gin
1/2 teaspoon ginger finely chopped
1 teaspoon mirin
1 teaspoon white sugar
1/2 chill pepper finely chopped
2 dozen oysters

Step 1
Place all the above ingredients in a jar, cover with lid and shake vigorously.

Step 2
Take 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.
