Romantic Mignonette

We all know those rumors about oysters’ so-called aphrodisiac powers, but supernatural or not, the bite-size bivalve is always our preferred way to begin a meal. Try our romance-themed mignonette with blush colored pomegranate and a tingle of sparkling rose to kick off your dreamy Valentine’s Day dinner. 


Serves 2 


A dozen oysters, cleaned and shucked

2 tablespoons chopped parsley 

¼ cup chopped pomegranate seeds, in their juices 

1 shallot, finely chopped

¼  cup Champagne vinegar 

3 tablespoons sparkling rose 


Combine above ingredients in a small mixing bowl, and serve alongside a platter of oysters and cut lemon. Dollop generous spoonfuls of mignonette onto each oyster and enjoy.
