  • Kosher salt, for coating the glass rims
  • 1 dozen oysters, freshly shucked, with their liquor
  • 1 cup chilled fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallots

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley leaves

    • Directions

      Moisten the rims of 12 shot glasses with water, then dip each glass in kosher salt to coat the rims. Put an oyster into each shot glass.

      In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice, red bell pepper, shallots, cilantro, parsley, and chives. Pour 1 tablespoon of the lime juice mixture into each of the 12 shot glasses over the oysters.

      Pour the tequila into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes and shake to chill the tequila. Add about 2 tablespoons of tequila to each of the shot glasses. Serve immediately.
