Strawberry Mignonette

Recipe By Chef Chris Boehme

The first settlers arrived in First Landing State Park and they discovered the Lynnhaven oyster. The Queen of England gave them the name of Lynnhaven Fancies™ and she had them served with fresh strawberries, just as the Native Americans were found eating them in the first recorded American meal. This recipe is by Chef Chris, and it is in honor of the first settlers and the Lynnhaven oyster… America’s First Oyster. Enjoy this fresh and fast topping with naked, or raw oysters.

¾ cup washed and finely diced strawberries
½ cup peeled baby cucumber, finely diced
1 small shallot peeled and finely diced
¼ cup sherry vinegar
1-2 tablespoons chopped mint (Optional)

Add all ingredients into a nonreactive bowl and mix well. Let rest for 5 to 10 minutes to allow the flavors to come together. Serve about 1 teaspoon atop a freshly shucked Lynnhaven oyster and enjoy.
