When fresh oysters are available, sometimes you want them super clean and simple. I love a few drops of hot sauce on a just shucked oyster, mixed with the liquor of the bi-valve, to add a touch of heat. With Eat Beer Hot Sauce’s Yellow Thai Racer, the bright citrus flavors from lemongrass, Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA, lime juice and makrut lime leaves play up the briny oyster, while the fatalii chili pepper adds a pleasant heat, then the coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, galangal and other Thai curry flavors dance over the palate. Oysters with Yellow Thai Racer might become a staple, once you’ve tried this winning combination. This dish is as hard as getting some of your favorite fresh oysters and having a bottle of Yellow Thai Racer at arm’s length.
