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.
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.
