Crispy Panko Coated Fried Oysters with Easy Homemade Cocktail Sauce
These are truly the World's Best Fried Oysters. I've been making these oysters for years now and I'm told over and over that they truly are the world's best fried oysters.
Cocktail Sauce Ingredients
1 cup ketchup
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish (or to taste)
salt and pepper to taste
1 pint oysters or 12 freshly shucked oyster
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 large egg
1 cup panko (Japanese bread crumb)
2 cups peanut or vegetable oil
For the cocktail sauce: In a small bowl, combine ketchup, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix well, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
In a small bowl, place the flour. In a second small bowl, whisk the egg with some of the oyster "juice". In a third small bowl, place the panko. Dredge the oysters in the flour shaking off any excess.
Dip the flour dredged oysters in the egg mixture. Shake off any excess and roll oysters in the panko being sure to completely coat. Place on a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for at least an hour.
In a heavy skillet, heat oil to 325 degrees. Add the breaded oysters and fry until golden brown about 1-2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and immediately sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve warm with cocktail sauce.
These are truly the world's best oysters. Once you try them I think you will agree that they are the best fried oysters you will ever taste in your life. I hope you get to enjoy them real soon.
