Deep-Fry Oysters Recipe

Deep-Fry Oyster Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

24 shell-on oysters
24 bacon rashers (slices)
15 ml/1 tbsp plain (all-purpose) flour

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 egg, separated
15 ml/1 tbsp melted butter or margarine

Oil, for deep-frying
4 parsley sprigs
2 lemons, cut into wedges

Method :

Open the oysters and free them from the shells, then roll each one in a rasher of bacon. Season the flour with salt and pepper, add the egg yolk and butter or margarine, beat well and leave to stand for 30 minutes. Just before it is needed, beat the egg white until stiff, then fold it into the batter. Heat the oil to 180C/350F, when a cube of day-old bread will sink to the bottom, rise and brown in 1 minute. Pick up each oyster on a skewer, dip into the batter, then deep-fry in the hot oil for a few minutes until golden brown. Drain well on kitchen paper (paper towels) and serve garnished with the parsley and the lemon wedges.
