Deep Fried Oysters With Panko /Kaki Furai

After the disastrous adventure in trying to cook my own fried oyster / 'or chien' at home,  I decided not to retry it until I get a good recipe for it. Since the raw oysters were quite large this time, I decided to deep-fry them with panko instead, like those served in Japanese restaurant. In japanese , fried oysters are called kaki furai...which are normally served as appetizer. It was so good that Jo and myself finished the whole plate of deep fried oyster as Daddy is not a fan of oysters to our delight - less man more share :p :p  . It was crunchy on the outside and sweet and succulent on the inside with the unmistakable scent of the sea .  Oishii !!!
Look how big the raw shucked oysters are and how fresh they are ... I finally found this shop that sells fresh seafood and most important it is located near my housing estate...I can get raw and fresh shucked oysters anytime I want now....anytime when the crave comes , I know where to get them. For Ipoh people, you can get them from this shop called - Perniagaan San Mao , 9, Laluan Ipoh Permai, Taman Ipoh Permai, Ipoh - business hours - 8am- 1pm, 4pm -6.30pm Tel : 019 -5132072

the raw shucked oysters are very fresh and large too..
.love it ! it was so fresh that 
 you can smell the scent of the sea.....

I can't wait to devour them as I deep fried them...
I think I devoured a few before they were served :p
the Chef must do the taste test first before serving  :)

It was crunchy on the outside and sweet and succulent on the inside 
with the unmistakeable scent of the sea ...Oishii !!!

I will definitely make this again when Josh comes home for Xmas :)

see how succulent these oysters were
and the crunchy panko crust enveloping such sweetness is finger lickin' good

Deep Fried Oysters With Panko/Kaki Furai


15 raw shucked oysters
Corn starch
Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
1 egg, lightly beaten
Lemon wedges
Oil for deep frying


Rinse the oysters thoroughly with water, pat dry with paper towels. Coat all oysters well with corn starch, follow by the beaten eggs, and finally panko. Shake off the excess panko.
Heat up a deep fryer or a pan with enough oil for deep-frying. Fry oysters until golden brown, then transfer the fried oysters out using a slotted spoon. Drain the excess oil on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve with some lemon wedges and some chilli sauce.

Enjoy !

  1. Oh Elin, I love oyster and I must try this soon :) Thanks!

  2. Fried oysters are so good! My hubby loves them also... I have no idea how to shuck an oyster though. I've never thought about buying pre-shucked oysters before, I wonder if I can get them over here too! :)
    And don't you love when you don't have to share your food? that's the best!

  3. I love this oyster recipe. It looks so delicious. I would love to dip that in some chili sauce :)

  4. I am a big fan of seafood but not oyster. I guess I had some bad experience with raw oyster. I actually never have fried oyster before. I don't mind having one of two of those :)

  5. That is a dish to die for.....! :)) the contrast in textures must have been amazing Elin! clever you.

  6. You've got very big pieces of Oysters!! Deep fried always the best and these is nice for party food!

  7. This looks heavenly... Some frozen oysters in the freezer, my missus bought...dunno when. Maybe I can try this...

  8. Wow, so yummy! I prefer cooked rather than raw oysters!

  9. it just look yummylicious....if you can get oysters in half shell, try it with a bit of spring onion, japanese mayo, ebiko and top with parmesan...then just grill for 5 mins.....oooooo.....drooool.... i take no responsibility!!!

  10. I miss oysters....can't even remember when I last had them....must be last the idea of using panko to make them heavenly crusty!

  11. These look so crispy and delicious! Excellent idea to use panko!
