Oysters Au Gratin With Anchovices And Capers – The taste of sea.

There really nothing like indulging in the world of seafood. That lovely salty tone of the anchovy is more a suggestion of the ocean before you even bite into the oyster, while the richness of the capers, the heat of the garlic and the crispness of the cheese dance around your tastebuds while you tuck in.

Add some fresh parsley for color and vibrancy and you’ve got quite the dish on your hands.

Pro Tip: Use smoked salt instead of kosher salt to bring another layer of flavor to the party.
