Recipe by Coasty
This recipe uses tamarind for the tart component in this oyster dressing. Tamarind pulp can be found at Asian grocers. If not you can make your own using tamarind pulp soaked in boiling water, cool and then mash the pulp up. Push through a fine sieve.

Yummy! We normally have oysters raw with a little lemon or make Recipe #211187. So I wanted to try a new dressing. This was really lovely, I had to leave out a few ingredients, I didn't use the rock salt to display the oysters as only Hubby and I was going to eat them. I also didn't use the snow pea sprouts because I only seen that ingredient when I was making the recipe, so I didn't get the chance to buy it from the supermarket. I would make these again, I thought all the flavours tasted well together and very unique. Thank you Coasty
