Gulf area Oysters compared to Northern varieties (General Comp)

Try this Mignonette sauce from Hogs Island oyster company in Mashall, CA.

Mignonette is a classic and refreshing topping for raw oysters. With a common base of light vinegar and shallot the home chef can make endless, creative variations of this traditional sauce. Hog Wash, which is served at the Hog Island Oyster Bars, is Hog Island's take with an added kick of jalapeno, cilantro and lime.

Hog Wash
1/4 cup seasoned rice vinegar
1/4 cup natural rice vinegar
1 large shallot, peeled and finely diced
1 large Jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced
1/2 bunch of cilantro, finely chopped
juice of 1 lime

Glorious Mess: My relatively un-traumatic wedding report

Thank you Hazelhurst and Uptown on the cash request instead of credit cards at Montrel's Bistro question, I see, hiding the cash take under the table. I have walked by this place many times going to the french market, they always seem to have a pot of boiling water outside the restaurant with a host standing outside with menus to lure you in. Please read trip adviser, bad, bad reveiws on this restaurant Montrel's Bistro.

Closet NOLA lover seeks...

www.lacrawfish.com

roro1831 try this place call LAcrawfish, they have boiled and live crawfish by the pound, LA Crawfish ships over night FED EX. I have been ordering boil crawfish from LAcrawfish company for the last couple years. The boiled crawfish are not bad, you just have to warm them up, live crawfish are always better.
