Mignonette is one of our favorite, simple accompaniments for oysters on the half shell.

Makes 1/2 cup

  • 1/4 C champagne vinegar
  • 1/4 C fine quality red wine vinegar
  • 2 T finely chopped shallots
  • 1 T of a mixture of finely chopped jalepeño (adjust to your taste), red, green, and yellow peppers
  • coarsely ground peppercorns to taste

Combine all ingredients and chill. Serve with chilled oysters on the half shell.

For a special treat, top the oyster with some salmon roe (ikura).
