We’re a family of seafood lover (minus the kids….at least for now!)..okay, so just me and hubby pretty much. I love tempura. This Japanese-style deep fried dishes (usually seafood and vegetables) has made its way into my favorite list and it’s not going anywhere. I enjoy the lightness and crispiness of the batter that coats whatever that you fry. If you are into seafood, or oysters (I like my oysters raw too), try this oyster tempura. I think you’ll find it hard to stay away. I gobbled them all up after I was done taking pictures. Oopss !
- About 16 fresh large oysters shucked
- Oil for deep-frying
- Chili sauce of your choice to serve I use Sriracha chili sauce
- Preheat oil for deep-frying. Prepare the batter only when you are ready to fry. Place beaten egg, self-rising flour, corn starch in a mixing bowl and add in the cold water. Using a chopstick or whisk to mix everything. You'll have some lumps in the batter and it's perfectly fine
- Working in batches, dip each oyster into the batter until golden brown, about 2 minutes or so. Place on absorbent paper towel. Repeat until you are done with the oyster. Serve with some chili sauce
