Oysters in champagne sabayon recipe (huîtres au sabayon de champagne)
- Cuisine: French
- Serves 2
This is one of my favourite hot appetisers - perfect with a glass of champagne.
Ingredients50g butter, melted
1 medium shallot, finely chopped
12 small mushrooms, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 freshly opened oysters
2 egg yolks
PreparationHeat 20g of the melted butter in a small pan. Stir in the shallots and cook over low heat for 2 minutes. Stir in the chopped mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes until most of the moisture has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat the oven to 250°C.
Remove the oysters from the shell and put the shells aside on an oven tray. Place the oysters in a small ovenproof pan with 50ml of the champagne and bring to a low simmer. Very gently stir in the oysters and turn off the heat.
Place the egg yolks in a bowl and mix with the remaining 30ml of champagne. Place the bowl over a bath of simmering water (bain-marie) and beat the yolks and champagne until light and fluffy. It takes a few minutes and the egg must not scramble.
Remove the bowl from the heat, slowly whisk in the remaining melted butter and season with salt and pepper.
Spoon a little mushroom purée into the 12 clean oyster shells. Top with a drained oyster, then coat the oysters with the champagne sauce. Place the oysters in the hot oven for a few minutes until the sauce has lightly browned. Serve immediately.
