Avocado and Oyster Mousse recipe

Ingredients

  • 200 g cream cheese
  • 100 g oysters
  • 60 ml warm water
  • 6 g unflavored gelatin
  • 4 stalks of celery diced
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 eggs
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Preparation

  1. In a medium skillet, add a drizzle of olive oil, heat over medium heat, and sauté the oysters for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Chop into small pieces and set aside.
  2. Peel the avocados and place them in a food processor or mini blender, add the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and process until smooth.
  3. Dissolve the unflavored gelatin in warm water, stir until dissolved, and let it rest for 5 minutes. Add to the avocado mixture and gently stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  4. Add the celery, chopped oysters, lemon juice, season with salt and pepper to taste, and process until everything is well combined. Transfer to a large bowl.
  5. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and gently fold them into the mixture using a silicone spatula in circular and enveloping motions. Pour into martini glasses and refrigerate for about 60 minutes or until set.
  6. Serve the avocado and oyster mousse well chilled, optionally garnished with whole oysters and avocado slices.
