Hot oysters with spinach

Hot oyster recipe with spinach

The end of the year for us is necessarily cold or hot oysters. We adore them, I admit that for me, the hot ones often make me crack. This time, I combined the spinach with a Riesling sauce, this exceptional wine from the Alsace plain. The warm oysters with spinach surprised us a lot, I took advantage of the arrival of my two friends, Elsa and Séverine, who feast on oysters. I cooked my oysters, of course, with the Riesling that I chose to accompany my warm spinach oysters, a marriage of happiness; the wine, in the sauce, perfumes this sabayon wonderfully. Instead, choose hollow oysters to make this recipe, you can place them on a ball of aluminum foil, they will be even more stable. A little bite in the oven and good tasting with these hot oysters with spinach. I took advantage of my partner in Alsace, the domain of Pierre Reinhart in Orschwihr
