Cooking salt and pepper deep fried oysters 台灣蚵仔酥

Salt and pepper deep fried oysters 台灣蚵仔酥 is a great Taiwanese dish for a starter, snack or main course! Oysters are a popular food in the island nation of Taiwan and this is a traditional Taiwanese street food. This dish is packed with flavour and you should make sure you eat them hot. The juicy oysters are deep fried in a light potato flour coating, resulting in an almost crisp outer layer surrounding the succulent oyster flesh. The oyster flavour is complemented by the traditional Taiwanese salt ‘n’ pepper powder and fresh basil.

  2. Hi Joanne,

    since I live not even near to our coast, I found it difficult to get oysters from the stores, even from the Asian markets here. But I tried this recipe with blue mussels and I think it works, too – thanks a lot. It’s a very good menu starter.

    Best wishes and thanks for sharing your recipes,

    Steffen (from Germany)
