citrus mignonette

Fresh citrus adds a bright flavor to a very traditional sauce for oysters. For an added touch of sweetness, stir in a bit of honey. The mignonette makes enough for 1 dozen oysters.

1/4 medium shallot, finely minced
2 tablespoons champagne (or white wine) vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
12 freshly shucked oysters, for serving

Place shallot, vinegar, and lemon juice in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until combined. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
