Secret #6: Add a Luxurious Topping

Oysters always feel special, even when served simply raw on the half shell. But to make them superindulgent, we embellish with lavish touches. The oysters get pan-fried in panko breading so they're crispy on the outside, juicy within. The oyster liquid is cooked down with wine and herbs for a delicious sauce that's made silky with crème fraîche. A final crown of sparkling fish roe takes this into sexy new territory. A happy portion of three has less than 130 calories.

Make an already healthy treat—the oysters—extra special with luxurious toppings: crème fraîche sauce and a jewel-like garnish of salty fish roe.
