Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 300 g oysters
  • [A]

    • 1 egg
    • 2 water flour
    • 1 water water
  • 2 ml panko breadcrumbs (fresh)
  • 1 lemon
  • A little parsley
  • A pinch of salt
  • A pinch of pepper
  • Flour
  • Oil for deep frying

Preparation

1

Gently rinse the oysters in salt water and drain.

Directions

1

Pat the oysters dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Dust with flour.

2

Thoroughly combine [A] in a bowl to make the batter. Once ready, dip the oysters in it.

Advice

Adding flour to the egg and water produces a firm batter that will seal the oysters' umami inside.

3

Generously bread the oysters with panko, and gently shape.

4

Heat the oil to 175 degrees Celsius and deep-fry the oysters until the panko is golden brown and crispy. Plate and garnish with lemon wedges and parsley.

Advice

After adding the oysters to the oil, wait until the breading has firmed before turning them over. Frequent prodding will crumble the breading, causing the oyster juices to leak into the oil.
