Hog Wash (adapted from Hog Island Oyster Company)


This is the vinaigrette that I learned to make from my friends at the Hog Island Oyster Company. It is a type of mignonette that also has some jalepeno and cilantro in it. The flavor is bright and spicy but still allows flavor of the oysters to come through.

Makes about ½ cup


Mix well and serve with oysters on the half shell.



⅓ cup rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons mirin
1 teaspoon sugar
1 large shallot, finely diced
1 large Jalapeno pepper, cilantro, finely chopped
- juice of 1 lime
