Oysters Three Ways is our go-to for a quick 5 minute party starter – Kilpatrick, Ponzu with Lemon Thyme and Soy with Ginger. Entertaining done, and just in time for Christmas!
Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s three days til Christmas already…🎄 But it’s actually perfect timing, since today we’re sharing our Oysters Three Ways!
Every Christmas for as long as I can remember, my parents have celebrated Christmas with a seafood and sparkling wine brunch, which is just what you need before a massive roast feast.
(P.S. If you’re looking for Christmas deliciousness, check out our list of Edible Christmas Presents!)
Alongside Wanderdad’s beloved king prawns mum would serve up her piece de resistance – smoky Oysters Kilpatrick straight from the oven. The smell of that heady mix of Worcestershire sauce, barbecue sauce and bacon always evokes those special mornings; torn wrapping paper strewn around the room, laugher and cheers and fun.
Since then our wandering adventures have led us experiment with the humble oyster, so today without further ado, let us present three of our favourite oyster recipes from our trip!
These Sparkling Red Wine Gingerbread Cookies will definitely get you on Santa’s good list this year. Packed with tingling spice, cook them til they’re soft and chewy or crunchy and crumbly – your choice!
Okay yeah, you might be looking at that title and thinking, ‘Oh cool, gingerbread cookies with a sip of sparkling wine, sounds delish. I’ll take it.’
Oh we do love your style!
We decided to skip the sip step, and pour our sparkling shiraz straight into the gingerbread dough.
Why, you ask?
Because we’re curious. Because we love to experiment, and because we love adding wacky and wonderful creations to our repertoire.
And also because…
Why not? 😀
Crispy crunchy, super thin and delicately sweet: We dare you to stop at just one of these Italian Butter Cookies. Only four ingredients and a super easy recipe stand between you and these tasty little morsels, which go amazingly with coffee or tea, smothered in chocolate, or dished up with ice cream. Ooooh yeah.
These little Italian biscuits are the bomb. With a name that translates to tongue of the cat (or even cat languages, if you trusted google translate 😛 ) how could you resist?
This Yakisoba Noodles Recipe is packed with pork, veggies and ramen noodles golden fried into deliciousness and drizzled in a sweet and salty stir fry sauce. Grab your chopsticks and get ready to wok and roll.
So… Sarah has a confession.
The first time she tried Yakisoba, she was ridiculously hungover on the 46th floor of the Umeda Sky Building, about to watch the summer festival fireworks.
The noodles sat in a crisp white take-away box, full of saucy gloriousness. A hangover cure to surpass even that of a KFC Ultimate Burger Meal.
Just one bite and she was hooked:
No… just… one… more… bite!
Mmmmmm, this is the last one…
I’m just going to finish it.
