I love eating freshly shucked oysters and especially love the different oyster dressing flavors. These Asian Dressed Oysters provide a delicious way to enjoy fresh oysters, instead of eating them ‘au naturel’ with plain lemon.
This recipe has Chinese inspired flavors with soy sauce, ginger and chili. However, I’m not sure this method of preparing and eating oysters is traditionally Chinese. So Asian Dressed Oysters it is!
Living by the ocean, I love eating fresh seafood. Every supermarket in Australia sells fresh Oysters on the half shell, which is perfect for this recipe. You will need to buy Rock Salt to serve your fresh oysters with. They aren’t for eating, but placed on your serving plate. Oysters are uneven and hard to put on a plate. The Rock Salt allows the oysters to be served upright. It also looks kind of cool, but don’t eat the Rock Salt!
I usually buy a dozen oysters and mix them up with various flavors of dressings. Oysters Kilpatrick is my favorite way to eat oysters, grilled in the oven with bacon. But this recipe is a close second! It’s so easy to make and full of flavor, serving this to guests will make you feel like an oyster masterchef. Bon Appetit! Приятного аппетита!
