Open the oysters, remove the nerve and set aside keeping them in their water. Slather some sole velouté in the inside of the bread slices, then place an oyster between two slices, in order to make a sandwich. Generously butter the outsides of the sandwich and put it between two square plates of 7x7cm. Put the small cushion and his mould on a vacuum bag and store in the fridge.

Remove the small cushion from his mould and properly cut it in square. Brown it on both faces with clarified butter while controlling the temperature. 
Serve the small cushion on the center of a flat plate and put 20g of caviar on it.
