Mignonette sauce is a French condiment that is typically spooned over raw oysters right before they are eaten.


  • 2 medium shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup champagne
  • 48 oysters in shells, well chilled and cleaned


  1. Place the shallots, vinegar, and pepper into a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. Cover the bowl and let stand at room temperature for 3 hours to allow flavors to blend.
  3. Just prior to serving, slowly add the champ age and gently stir to combine.
