A great dressing for oysters

Oysters are best served very cold and this dressing is a superb compliment to the mineral saltiness of oysters.

  3. Add the remaining seasoning and finally whisk in the oil.

  4. Chill over ice until very cold.

  5. Shuck the oysters (open with a small, thick-bladed knife), or get the fishmonger to shuck them and loosen the meat from the shell.

  6. Serve over crushed ice and salt, dressed with the cold dressing and finely grated fresh horseradish.
