Oysters with Margherita granita





This one of my favourite summer traditions, fresh shucked oysters purchased from the Sydney Fish Markets served with an icy cold and refreshing granita……. a perfect way to impress my dinner guests, with minimal effort from the cook!

1 cup white sugar

2 limes finely grated,  zest only

3 medium sized freshly squeezed lime juice

2 nips tequila

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Kosher salt

doz. oysters

Lime wedges and fresh chervil, for serving (optional)

In a medium saucepan, heat cups water and sugar over medium-high heat, stirring, until sugar has dissolved, about 1 minute.
Stir in lime zest and juice, tequila, and lemon juice. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Pour mixture into a shallow dish; cool, then cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Freeze until set, 6 hours or overnight.
Using the tines of a fork, scrape mixture until flakes form. Freeze (covered) until ready to serve, place little mounds of granita on each freshly shucked oyster and garnish platter with lime wedges and shell fish with chervil leaves.
