Shallow Fried Oysters Recipe is a delicious and easy to experiment with oysters where they are first coated with some spices and semolina-rice flour mixture and then shallow fried. Being from Goan Saraswat Brahmin family in Goa, I love all seafood and try to prepare different recipes using them. When it comes to shellfish, you just can't stop experimenting on them. Oysters are very rich in zinc and today's recipe is very simple with minimum ingredients easily available in your kitchen. These shallow fried oysters can be served as an appetizer, or can be served with lunch or dinner.

How to make Shallow Fried Oysters Recipe

  1. To begin Shallow Fried Oysters Recipe, first, get all the oysters cleaned and keep them for draining out the excess water in a colander. This step is important since the spices won’t get coated properly on to the oysters if they are watery. You can also pat them dry with a paper towel to dry them.

  2. Mix homemade garam masala, chili powder and haldi in a plate along with rava/ semolina and rice flour.

  3. Heat a skillet/ pan, add a tablespoon of oil.

  4. Coat each oyster well with the prepared masala mix and place on the skillet.

  5. Cover it with a plate and cook on medium high heat for about 2-3 minutes.

  6. Check in between. If it looks dry, add a little oil and continue frying.

  7. After 3 minutes, flip sides and cook uncovered for 2-3 more minutes.

  8. Once these Pan-fried Oysters look fully cooked (dark browned on both the sides), switch off the stove.

  9. Serve Shallow Fried Oysters Recipe hot with rice or mutton biriyani and fish curry.
