Tempura Oysters with PG’s Sweet Chilli Relish

Here’s just a quick one for you.  Now, I’m not a massive fan of the Oyster… Raw that is.  I’ve tried them cooked and they are lovely just steamed in their shell (they taste like large mussels).  But now I have tried something a little different.  Tempura Battered Oysters!  They’re fantatastic and work superbly well my Sweet Chilli Relish! You’ll need:

  • 6 Fresh Oysters (out of the shell)
  • 100g corn flour
  • 150g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
    • Alternatively you can buy a pack of ready to go tempura batter.
    • Iced water
    • 2 tbsp Sweet Chilli Relish

Simply mix everything together in a bowl until you get a light batter, then grab your oysters and dip them in the batter and fry in hot oil.  You can deep fry them, but I tend to use a wok with about an inch or so of oil in the bottom.  Serve with the Sweet Chilli Relish and a slice of lemon.  This makes a lovely starter!
