Hogwash Recipe

A tasty recipe you can make ahead of serving with just six simple ingredients. Serve alongside a platter of fresh oysters and enjoy tucking into your delicious creation.
  • Time 11minutes
  • Serves 4
  • Difficulty Easy


  • 60ml mirin
  • 60ml rice wine vinegar
  • 1 large shallot, peeled and minced
  • 1 large jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1/2 bunch coriander, finely chopped
  • 1 lime, juice and zest 


  1. Using a 50-50 blend of mirin and seasoned rice wine vinegar gives the perfect balance of acidity and sweetness. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.
  2. When serving, stir the Hogwash beforehand to include all the goodies in the bowl. Serve in a ramekin or small, shallow bowl alongside freshly shucked raw oysters. Place a teaspoon near the bowl for guests to spoon the sauce onto their oysters.
  3. Use the Hogwash the same day it’s made. If making ahead, mix all dry ingredients and store refrigerated in an airtight container.
  4. Add lime juice and vinegar blend just before serving.
