Secrets from the Chefs

Recipes from Murray Circle and the Cooking School

 

Crispy Pacific Oysters, Citrus Marinated Seaweed Salad, Avocado, and Yuzu Aioli

Murray Circle Restaurant

Chef Justin Everett
As we head into the colder months, the flavor and quality of Pacific oysters is something that should not be missed when planning a holiday get-together with friends and family. This dish was inspired by a cold day with my wife and sons spent at Fort Cronkhite beach near the Marin Headlands. The beach is made of beautiful black sand and a nice set of waves barreling towards the shore. At Murray Circle, we replicate the black sand with a mixture of ground wheat berry and fermented black garlic. But you can get the same effect with dried black seaweed ground in a spice or coffee grinder. This dish can be served as an appetizer for a dinner or a canapé at a holiday party. view/print recipe (PDF)
