Notes

Taking advantage of some of the amazing seafood in the Pacific NW, Chef Thomas is using the delicious Hood Canal Miyage Oysters for this recipe. Miyagi Oysters have been cultured for over 300 years in Japan before reaching the Washington coast. If these are not available  in your area, feel free to use whatever oyster you get locally.
