To make life simpler, order your oysters in advance from the local fishmonger and ask to have them shucked just before you arrive to pick them up. To serve them, fill a platter with coarse salt and nestle the oyster halves on top.

2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh lemon juice
1 tbsp (15 mL) water
½ tsp (2 mL) lemon rind, very finely grated (preferably with a rasp)
½ tsp (2 mL) sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) fresh chives, very finely chopped
2 dozen Malpeque Oysters, scrubbed, shucked and on the half shell

1. Stir together shallot, lemon juice, water, zest and sugar in a small bowl. Let sit for 40 minutes at room temperature.

2. Stir chives into sauce just before serving oysters.
