  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots

Directions

Combine the pepper, salt, wine, olive oil, and shallots in a small bowl and whisk to blend. Set aside.

Put 2 cups of the ice in each of 4 shallow rimmed soup bowls and press down gently to make a level bed. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the kosher salt over each bowl of ice. Place 6 oysters in their shells on each bed and spoon an equal amount of the sauce over each. Serve.
