Instructions
  1. Remove the oysters from their shells and keep chilled. Wash the shells and arrange in 4 individual gratin dishes placed on a bed of coarse sea salt to keep them level.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan and toss the leek in the hot butter. Season with salt, freshly ground pepper and sugar, cover tightly and cook gently until tender. Season with lemon juice.
  3. Boil the wine with the saffron or curry powder over moderate heat until reduced by half. In a small bowl, combine the cream with the egg yolk and whisk. Whisk in the hot wine mixture and return to low heat to thicken slightly, whisking all the time. Do not boil. Add salt and white pepper to taste and remove from heat.
  4. Place the cooked leeks in the oyster shells and cover with the oysters. Coat each oyster with the sauce, and place under a preheated hot broiler for a minute+ to glaze. Serve immediately.
