Clean and boil the green beans.
In a skillet, brown a clove of garlic in olive oil and discard once golden.
Combine with the beans and continue cooking.
Add a sprig of fresh oregano and finish cooking.
Then finely chop.

Toasted bread
Stir-fry bread cut into cubes in a pan with olive oil, and then toast in the oven (107°C for 6 minutes) until crispy.

Dish composition
Coat the dish with the cream of beans, and then place the two oysters in the center.
Top the oysters with quenelles of green bean pesto and garnish with toasted bread.
Finish with olive oil and a dash of star anise.
