Delicious & Easy

Perfect Oyster Shooters


1. Shuck 4 oysters and remove from shell. Cut each oyster in half and keep chilled until ready to use.

2. Pour 1 ounce of hot sake into each shot glass. Crack open and drop 1 raw quail egg into each sake shot glass while the sake is still hot so the quail egg becomes lightly poached.

3. Add half oyster to each shot glass. Top off shot glasses with a dash of ponzu (DIY recipe here) and Sriracha to taste.

4. Sprinkle with scallions and garnish with lemon. Enjoy immediately.

*You can easily modify the recipe and make virgin shots by substituting hot water for the sake. And the recipe is versatile, making it easy to sub in other delicacies from the sea like scallops and uni for the oysters.
