At Fish & Game, the staff uses a homemade kimchi of daikon greens and bakes the oysters in a wood-fired oven.

Miminashi’s Little Gem Salad
Ingredients
  • 24 oysters
  • 1 egg, plus 3 egg yolks
  • 2 sticks (½ pound) unsalted butter
  • ½ cup kimchi brine, strained
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • ½ cup kimchi, drained and minced
Directions

Shuck oysters, leaving them in bottom shell with liquid. Arrange in rimmed baking sheet on bed of coarse salt, to hold them steady while you make Hollandaise.

Put egg and yolks in blender. Heat butter and brine in saucepan over medium heat. After butter melts, whisk mixture and pour slowly into running blender until it visibly thickens. Add salt to taste, if necessary.

Heat broiler. Top each oyster with about 1 teaspoon of kimchi and fill with Hollandaise. Broil until sauce is nicely browned, and serve immediately. Serves 8–12.

Fish & Game Wine Director Mike Rice says, “This funky pink pet-nat has a little residual sugar to stand up to that briny oyster, the kimchi and the Hollandaise. Delicious to drink with the oysters, and on its own when they’re gone.”
