Lemon wedges, for garnish
For the sauce: In a small bowl whisk together all ingredients. Cover and chill 1 hour before serving with oysters.
For the oysters: Melt butter in a skillet. Saute the garlic for 2 minutes to infuse the butter.
Place the bread crumbs in a mixing bowl and add half the garlic butter, set aside. To the remaining garlic butter in the skillet, add shallots and spinach, cook for 3 minutes until the spinach wilts.
Deglaze the pan with Pernod. Season with salt and pepper, add a dash of red pepper sauce. Allow the mixture to cook down for a few minutes.
Finish off the bread crumbs by mixing in olive oil, Parmesan and chervil, season with salt and pepper. Spoon 1 heaping teaspoon of the spinach mixture on each oyster followed by a spoonful of the bread crumb mixture.
Sprinkle a baking pan amply with rock salt. Arrange the oysters in the salt to steady them.
Bake in oven at 600 degrees for 6-8 minutes until golden. Serve with lemon wedges and red pepper sauce.
