Mignonette Recipe

Mignonette

Makes enough sauce for 12 oysters.
This classic oyster accompaniment is quick and easy to make. Shallots and peppercorns are standard but feel free to play with the acid, almost any vinegar will do except balsamic due to its color. The shallots will mellow in the vinegar so this sauce is best made an hour or two in advance.

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup Champagne vinegar, sherry vinegar, or rice wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp finely diced shallot
  • 1/2 tsp whole black peppercorns, finely crushed
  • Pinch of salt

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl serving bowl, stir well.
  2. Serve spooned over freshly shucked oysters.
