Backyard Oyster Bar

I was craving for some oysters last weekend. Instead of driving all the way to Toronto, hubby and I bought some fresh Atlantic oysters from a local seafood market. Then, we set up an impromptu oyster bar under the apple tree in our own backyard!

While Jayvee is shucking the oysters, I made mignonette sauce using my own recipe (see recipe below) using "pinakurat" {coconut vinegar} from  the Philippines.

We can taste the sea from the freshness of the oysters. Paired with sweet cranberry wine from Vermont,  no doubt, this was one of the best al fresco dining we had in the backyard!

Mignonette Sauce {with Pinakutrat Vinegar}


2 tablespoons Pinakurat vinegar {coconut vinegar}
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons finely chopped shallot2
1 1/2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
pinch of freshly ground black pepper
generous pinch of sugar (add more if you want sweeter mignonette)
pinch of salt
Stir all ingredients in a bowl and let it stand for at least 15 minutes before
