Cocktail Sauce:

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper. Makes about 2 cups (500 mL).


Shallot Mignonette:

Dice shallot fine. Toast peppercorns and grind coarsely. Combine shallots, ground peppercorns and all remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Makes about 1 cup (250 mL).


To serve:

Serve both alongside a selection of a dozen or more freshly shucked oysters on the half shell, such as Kushi, Beau Soleil and Royal Miyagi.

Makes enough sauce for two to three dozen oysters.


Wine pairing:

Blue Mountain "Gold Label" NV Brut

Love the minerality and green fruits that disappear into its fresh lip-smacking stony finish. Oysters are the match for this sophisticated B.C. sparkler.
