Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Roughly chop 3/4 of the cucumber and place in a saucepan with the white wine. Cook at a strong simmer until the wine has almost evaporated, leaving the cucumber softened and very moist.
  2. Puree the cucumber in a blender.
  3. Blend the pureed cucumber with the lemon myrtle and mayonnaise, then stir through the remaining cucumber, diced into 1cm cubes.
  4. Season to taste. Serve the oysters with the dressing on the side.

Additional Tips

Try to make the dressing at least 45 minutes before serving for the flavours to infuse. Serve in little ramekins with the oysters.
