Experimental for a perfect grilled oysters

Grilled Oysters

Most of you already know I love food. My motto has always been:

LIVING TO EAT NOT EATING TO LIVE.

Me and my wife just bought 50 king size oysters. This is a great opportunity for us to do some experimental on how to make a great grilled oysters.  We’ve decided to grill em in  three different flavours, here are the main ingredients:

1. Tomatoes as main flavours with red chilli and spring onions.

My wife doesn’t believe tomatoes will go well with oysters. I do agree with her, but we need to try it out to be sure.

2. Red chilli and shallot in hot olive oil as main flavours with spring onions, coriander.

This may work, but we know the shallot will overwhelm the oysters.

3. Simple spring onions as main flavours, a little red chilli, Tabasco, coriander and Tequila/Sake.

We already know this combination will work!

General seasning: Pepper, dash of Tequila or Sake, olive oil.

Tip: Avoid all ingredients contain salt.

As you can see, we always has red chilli or few drops of Tabasco to give a small kick and enhance the taste.

Drink: Oyster in a shot glass with a dash lime, topped with a good quality tequila.

Verdict: I post my verdicts as soon they are eaten 🙂

Update: Now that we have enjoyed the food, here is our verdicts.

1. By all surprise this is the best combination of flavours. The souring and sweet taste from tomato does enhance the oysters and perfect balance with the saltiness of the oysters. My really wife loves this combination.

2. The shallot gives a great taste but overpower coriander and spring onion. Overall, it’s good but not as great as tomato receipt.

3. This combination will not fail you, it’s simple; so is the taste. In my opinion, it’s to simple.

What next? I’ll soon try out other flavours like cheese or black beans for some Asian tastes.
