Most great appetizers seem to be high in calories and fat. But this one--made by draining tangy goat’s milk yogurt and flavoring it with a salsa of smoked oysters and tomatoes--is actually quite reasonable. That’s thanks in large part to the yogurt, which contains only 90 calories and 4 1/2 grams of fat per cup, as compared to 190 calories and 8 grams of fat for yogurt made from cow’s milk.
Smoked oysters come packed in oil, so be sure to drain them well and then pat them dry. Drain the yogurt in the refrigerator overnight to firm it and give it the texture of a fresh cheese. It can then be used in any number of ways.
The combination of oysters and yogurt go together well.
