  3. Remove the oyster from the shell and wash the shell
  4. Mix the tomato, ginger, coriander, onion and sugar in a bowl and season
  5. Spoon into the empty oyster shells and place a fresh oyster on top of each shell
For the horseradish mayonnaise
  1. Mix the mayonnaise with half the horseradish and the lemon juice. Season
  2. Spoon a little sauce over each oyster and sprinkle with the remaining horseradish
