    Summer is the season for eating fresh oysters near the water. For casual occasions you can’t beat the old natural oyster with a squeeze of lemon. However if you’re entertaining you might want to spice things up a little. The fresh chilli and ice cold gin in this marinade should be more than enough to do the trick.

    1. Place all the above ingredients in a jar, cover with lid and shake vigorously.
    2. Take teaspoon and drizzle small amount over each oyster just before serving.
    3. For a more intense flavour; spoon over oysters one hour before serving.
    4. Note that this recipe is intended to have a fair bit of kick, if it is too spicy remove the seeds from the chilli before chopping, alternatively if it is too alcoholic hold back on half the gin.

    This is the best way to serve oyster I have tried so far! The gin and ginger are so unexpected and yet so well fit in! I couldn't wait to try out this recipe, not only because I love oysters but because it is so simple ti prepare, and now I'm obsessed! If you ever come to my party you can expect to be served oysters with chilli, lime, and gin :)

    This recipe was fun to prepare and even more fun to consume (hello gin!) I loved the ginger/lime/chilli combo, they just really bring out the best in each other and they gave those oysters an incredible taste. All the more reasons to love seafood! Now that I have it tried out, I will definitely serve this appetizer at my next party.

    Adore sea food and especially oysters! Love them fresh, but after I tried them with ginger and gin I cannot think of any better option to serve them!
