As promised, we are serving you up some recipes to try at home weekly! 
This week is a simple fried oyster recipe with some presentation flare. 

What you will need for your Fried Oysters in the Shell:

  • How ever many oysters you want 
  • 2 eggs 
  • Panko bread crumbs 
  • Spices 
  • Mayonnaise 
  • Whole grain mustard 
  • ½ a cup of oil 

The Steps

  • First shuck your oysters! 
  • Start your oil heating in a covered pot on medium heat. 
  • Next whisk your eggs with a little water and place the oysters in the egg wash. 
  • Stir whichever spices you like into your panko crumbs then take the oysters out of the egg wash and coat them in the breadcrumbs. 
  • Once your oil is hot, carefully place the oysters in and let fry until browned on both sides then take them out of the oil and let them dry on a paper towel. 
  • Mix together your mayonnaise and mustard to make an aioli (add salt and pepper if you like) 
  • Fill the oyster shells with the aioli then place the fried oysters in that boat of deliciousness! 
  • If you want a bit of color top with fresh parsley or chives.
