Make a batter with
2 T cornstarch
1 T water
2 t bakingpowder
1 t salt
½ t freshly ground white pepper
2 t sesame oil
Set aside for 20 minutes
Rinse and drain 450 gram of fresh oysters.
I bought mine at the chinese supermarket. A whole bag with a kilo of frozen oysters. Perfect for this purpose.
Fill a bowl with 50g breadcrumbs. (panko)
Drop some oysters in the batter.
Take them out, one by one and toss them with the breadcrumbs.
Put them on a plate.
Heat peanut oil for deepfrying. (I heated it to 190 °C)
Add the oysters and fry for about 3 minutes until goldenbrown.
Let them drip on some papertowls.
Serve with sichuanpeppersalt.
Or chinese red vinegar with some jullienne ginger.
I thought they were very nice. I’m not that much into deepfried stuff, but I was bored this afternoon. And I remembered I had these oysters in the freezer. I think they make a nice snack of appetizer.
And the combination with sichuanpeppersalt is really very nice.
