Steamed Rock Tio (Oysters) and Grilled Sausage with Wilted Spinach

Check out hte succulent wilted spinach, plumped up steamed tio and the best-made snarlers in Aotearoa in the photo, I just love this dish!

Serves 4

8 sweet fennel sausages, or your favourite sort

2 handfuls of spinach

12 fresh oysters, shucked and left in half shell

flaky sea salt and pepper

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

good squeeze of lime juice

Grill sausages on a preheated, greased hot plate or grill.

When sausages are almost cooked, chuck the spiach into the upper section of a steamer, with the oysters on top. Bring the water in the steamer to the boil, put the lid on and cook for 2-3 mins.

Plate up oysters and sausages on top of spinach, sprinkle with flaky sea salt, pepper and the good oil, then squeeze over some lime juice and garnish with half a lime.
