Oysters with Meyer Lemons and Cracked Peppercorns

1 dozen

The mild acidity of Meyer lemons and the spice of ground pink and green peppercorns bring aroma and piquancy to the gentle brininess of a freshly shucked Malpeque oyster.


  • 1 dozen fresh oysters, scrubbed, shucked, and left on the half shell

  • 3 Meyer lemons (2 cut into segments, 1 thinly sliced into rounds)

  • 1 ½ teaspoons green peppercorns

  • 1 ½ teaspoons pink peppercorns


  1. Arrange oysters on a bed of crushed ice. Top each with a lemon segment. Crush peppercorns with the flat side of a chef's knife, and sprinkle over lemon. Serve garnished with lemon rounds.
