Pan Fried Oysters

A delicious way to serve fresh oysters - for those of you who do not like them raw.


  • 8 tbsp flour
  • 8 tbsp potato starch (katakuriko)
  • 2 eggs
  • Oysters (washed and patted dry)
  • Lemon wedges
  • Salted butter

Combine the flour and potato starch in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, beat the eggs.  Dip each oyster in egg and then cover them with flour mixture by dipping them in it. 

For a thicker coating, double-dip (dip in egg mixture and flour mixture) again.

Place the coated oysters on a plate, covered with wrap, and put in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

Remove from the refrigerator and let them stand for 15 minutes.  Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Add the oysters to the skillet, turning it up a little.  Fry them, turning once (about 2 minutes each side). 

Serve immediately with lemon wedges or with your favourite hot sauce.
