Oysters signify celebration and are a wonderful way to whet appetites. You can serve them with lemon wedges and hot pepper sauce or with our simple garnish.

  • Portion size 8 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: January 2004


  • 32 oysters
  • 1 (4 oz/125 g) golden Canadian whitefish caviar
  • green onion
  • lemon wedges


Plan on at least 3 or 4 oysters for each guest and shuck them up to 1 hour before serving. Place in shells on tray of chipped ice (with some seaweed, if available) or coarse salt to hold the shells; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Spoon generous 1/4 tsp (1 mL) golden Canadian whitefish caviar onto each oyster; top with a few finely shaved rings of green onion. Serve with lemon wedges.
