Last updated

Freshly shucked oysters are an irrefutable pleasure, and while they’re delicious as they are, a leaf of pickled sea lettuce adds both vibrant acidity, and a boost to the already inviting ocean flavour.

The Essential Ingredient Dried Seaweed collection includes both sea lettuce and sea lettuce flakes, both of which are perfect for this simple but elegant recipe.Buy the range in our stores and online.

Ingredients (Serves 12)

  • 12 freshly shucked oysters
  • 45g The Essential Ingredient Sea Lettuce
  • 3/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 1 garlic glove
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds

Combine the vinegar, water, garlic clove, mustard seeds, salt and sugar in a saucepan. Simmer over medium heat until sugar and salt are completely dissolved.

Allow pickling liquid to cool completely, then add dried sea lettuce.

Soak sea lettuce for 2 hours, then place a small crumpled leaf onto each oyster. Serve.
