Ingredients (serves 4):


Open the oysters, saving the juice and the shells.

Sieve the oyster juice to remove any sediment or broken shell.
Poach the oysters in their juice, then place them back on the shell.

Advice: Clarified butter is made by melting it and discarding the sediment left at the bottom of the pan. It is purer and can be used for cooking at higher temperatures.
Recommended wine: Deutz Blanc de Blancs 1995
*The sabayon and the butter must be at the same temperature, it is the key to the recipe's success.
