Lately, we’ve been feasting on oysters whenever possible (every other week). My husband makes a mignonette sauce to be paired with them and the combination is just mouthwatering.

There’s a basic mignonette sauce with main ingredients of vinegar and shallots. However, because I can’t stand the taste of uncooked shallots or any onions, the husband modified the sauce. I think his rendition is much better than the typical boring one!

1/4 cup minced apple (green apples are best, can be replaced with mango), 1/4 cup minced cucumber, 1/4 cup rice vinegar (or regular white vinegar), pinch of sugar, pinch of salt, juice of half a lemon, 1 minced Thai chili pepper, teaspoon of finely chopped cilantro (or parsley)
