Use an entre-deux-mers or other dry white wine for this dish.
- 12 unshucked oysters
- Coarse salt
- White wine
Preheat oven to 475°. Nestle oysters flat side up into a bed of coarse salt in a roasting pan. Bake until shells gape, 5-10 minutes. Discard any oysters that don't open. Pry off top shells, keeping oyster liquor from spilling, and cut lower muscles to release flesh. Spoon 1 tbsp. wine over each oyster.
