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
