Grilled Peach, Corn & Prosecco Mussels

20 Oct

PM-12

Having recently returned from a farewell-to-summer week on Cape Cod, I couldn’t have been more in the mood to cook up a mussel dish. Inspiration wasn’t far; meandering around the neighborhood reminiscing about the beach, cocktails and oysters, it was next to impossible to ignore the near-ripe peaches hanging over the sidewalks. Who knew there were so many peach trees in the city?

That’s when the idea struck me: combine local peaches with fresh mussels in a dish that celebrates all things summer, by welcoming in autumn’s bounty.

PM-14

While sorting through the vast variety of peaches available at my local market, I was drawn to the oddly shaped and aptly named Donut Peach. It looks as it sounds – like the healthy version of a cider donut. Just next to the peaches were fresh picked ears of Massachusetts-grown corn, a delight I can never pass up. I added them to my bag, and the meal began to come together.

Grilled Oysters.

While I enjoy oysters all year-round, there’s something about summer in New England that gets me craving these bivalves on a far too regular basis. Not that I’m complaining, as this is the place to have those kinds of cravings. There are many varieties to choose from, should I ever become bored with one. My favorites span from Nova Scotia to Cape Cod, with many subtle and not so subtle differences between each location.

The traditional method of consuming oysters – raw with some lemon, cocktail sauce and/or horseradish – gets me every time. I love it.

However, I’ve branched out a bit and have had some exciting combinations lately – including shaved pickled ginger ice and red wine mignonette. I could also devour an entire batch of fried oysters in under thirty seconds if it weren’t for forcing myself not to do so. I had yet, however, been in the good fortune to indulge on a grilled oyster. That’s where this recipe, my backyard and the delightfully simple process for making grilled oysters at home come together.
