oysters with spicy cucumber & lime granita

I created this recipe with the express intention to add a massive hit of flavour and textural contrast. Its refreshing and delicious, and I actually can’t get enough of fresh oysters.

I love them with a squeeze of lemon and and a grinding of black pepper, but this is a little different. The Jalapeño Tabasco adds just enough heat to make it interesting, but if you are a chilli head, you could definitely play around with adding more. The lime somehow works better here than lemon (in my humble opinion), and the cucumber juice is savoury and super refreshing.
