Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 dozen Kumamoto Oysters
  • 4 Tomatoes
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 bunch of Cilantro
  • 1 Garlic Clove

  • 4 Oranges
  • 2 Limes

Directions

  2. Mix and add salt and pepper to taste. Let it sit for 4 hours.

  6. Garnish with micro greens.

Pro Tips

Xni-Pec is a Mayan word meaning ‘Dog’s Snout’, since this hot sauce can make you sweat like a dog’s nose when eaten.
