How to make Oysters and oyster mushrooms


:) Enjoy oyster mushrooms with oysters. Wee!

Oyster Mushrooms

  1. Wash and cut off the thick stems off the bigger pieces of oyster mushrooms.
  2. Put about a cup of flour in a bowl and add salt and pepper.
  3. Crack egg into another bowl and beat it.
  4. Heat up a wok or a deep frying pan.
  5. Coat mushrooms in egg then with flour.
  6. Deep fry till they're golden brown
  7. Place them on a paper napkin to get rid of excess oil.
  8. Munch, crunch, yum!
  9. Don't eat all if you want some to decorate later.

It goes really well with thai sweet chilli sauce. :)

Oysters

  1. I used fresh oysters so I actually had to open up the shells.

Quick tip : get a small sharp knife, stick it into the miniscule gaps where the top and bottom of the shell meets, then twist HARD and run the knife inside the oyster to ensure it didn't get stuck to the top. Be careful, the shell is rather sharp and can cut you.

  1. Slice ginger and spring onions and toss them around a frying pan with a bit of oil until the edges of the ginger is slightly brown.
  2. Lightly coat the oysters with cornflour and add them in.

Some people recommend boiling the oysters first, but I didn't, you may want to try that if you choose to follow this recipe.

  1. Then add in a dash of cooking wine and a bit of soy sauce, the key is so that the sauce will be just right and not spilling out everywhere.
  2. Just before you take it out of the frying pan, add just a little bit of sesame oil, not too much because it will make your dish taste bitter.
  3. It's ready! Serve and consume. Enjoy!

p.s : I added too much sauce when I made that dish. :( Also I made it spontaneously I hope I got everything right.

    crud this looks great i love oysters. however i don't quite love the texture of corn flour. for my preference just plain old all purpose flour would have been fine. or even fine breadcrumbs , still it looks delicious. I dont mind the extra sauce so bring it on :D

    These would be great as an appetizer where you place some of the cooked oysters on top of each oyster mushroom with a zesty garnish on top. And give it randilicious name like "oyster mounts oyster" when presented to guests.

    oyster mounts oyster eh? actually that sounds like a great presentation a little bit of the oysters on a big friend oyster mushroom with some reddish garnish to add colour.. great idea!

    jai : actually the cornflour serves a dual purpose of not only being a protective layer to stop the oysters from getting burnt but also to thicken the sauce :) but you can do it with normal flour as well!

    Oysters are one of my faves! I'll definitely be trying this one! I wonder if you could use rice flour as well.

    any flour is fine I think :) just to protect the oysters from getting burnt!
