Ostiones Con Huevos de Salmon

By Chef John Ash

Oysters on the half shell are such a treat. This Mexican influenced recipe includes an adaptation of “Hog Wash”, from our friends at Hog Island Oyster Company. Salmon caviar is widely available on the internet if your local fish market does not carry – or they may order it for you.
