  • Summary

    Before tasting the oysters served by Tadashi Ono at New York's Matsuri, I was convinced that the best oyster is a naked one. But there is something magical about the way frozen ponzu brings out the sweetness of a plump oyster; add the crunch of tobiko and you have something absolutely extraordinary. In our version, we serve the oysters on a bed of seaweed to keep them flat and to retain their liquor. If you can't find seaweed, substitute a bed of uncooked sushi rice. Traditional ponzu (a soy citrus sauce) is made with fish stock (dashi), but we used a kelp broth instead because we found the stock too heavy.

    Ingredients

    • 1 (1-inch-wide) piece kombu (dried kelp), rinsed
    • 1 cup water
    • 3 tablespoons mirin (Japanese sweet rice wine)
    • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
    • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar (not seasoned)
    • 2 tablespoons fresh or bottled yuzu juice
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 18 small oysters (preferably Kumamoto or Prince Edward Island), not shucked
    • 1 oz tobiko (flying-fish roe)
    • 1 oyster knife
    • Garnish: a bed of seaweed (1 lb)
    • a protective glove; an oyster knife
