Oysters with a classic Thai dressing that is hot, sour and tangy
For the dressing
Roughly chop the chillies, garlic and ginger. Add the coriander. Use a mortar and pestle or blender in a food processor until you have a rough paste. Add sugar in small amounts until dissolved. Add fish sauce and lime juice to taste.
Soak noodles in warm water until soft, drain and toss together with half the herbs and dressing. Remove oyster s from the shell and place a bed of noodles in the shell, return the oyster on top of the noodles, spoon over a little dressing garnish with herbs and crispy shallots then serve
