This wakame and spring onion dressing celebrates the flavours of freshly shucked oysters from the ocean. Charring spring onion on the barbecue transforms it from sharp and acidic into sweet, soft, smoky and silky. Caramelised lemon will add refreshing sweetness to the dressing. Wakame, soy and sesame finish this dressing, bringing a world of savoury and salty flavours. Be sure to give this restaurant quality (yet so simple) dish a go!

 2 doz freshly shucked oysters
 6 spring onions
 1 l lemon, halved
 2 tsp teaspoons light soy sauce
 ½ tsp teaspoon toasted sesame oil
 2 tbsp tablespoons wakame salad (seaweed salad), plus extra to garnish
 Toasted sesame seeds, to garnish

2

Prepare the barbecue for direct cooking over high heat (250°C-290°C).

3

Brush the cooking grills clean with a wire brush. Grill the whole spring onions over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until the outer layers are blackened and charred, approximately 5 minutes, turning once. While the spring onions are cooking, place the lemon halves, cut side down onto the cooking grill and grill over direct high heat for 2 minutes or until caramelised.

4

Once cool enough to handle, peel most of the blackened outer layers off the spring onions and discard. It is okay if there are small amounts of charred parts left behind. Cut away the root end and fibrous dark green end to leave behind soft, caramelised spring onion. Finely chop the spring onion and add to a bowl. Juice the lemon halves into the bowl. Finely chop 2 tablespoons of wakame. Add the soy sauce, sesame oil and chopped wakame to the bowl. Mix to combine and taste, adjusting the flavours if you desire.

5

Top your freshly shucked oysters with a teaspoon of the spring onion and wakame dressing. Garnish with a couple strands of wakame and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds.
