Cider Battered Oysters


Another in our series for Smith Journal.

This time we went on a bit of a winter road trip to Bruny Island to grab some oysters from a mates farm to make cider battered oysters.

1 cup of apple cider (I used quite a dry one)
1 cup of flour
Canola oil for frying


To make the batter, combine flour and cider into a runny paste and refrigerate for one hour.

Fill a medium sized pot with oil and heat until 180 degrees Celsius or just before it starts to smoke (you want it nice and hot).

Dip the oysters in the batter and fry until golden.

Season and serve.

    Since it’s Thanksgiving, I’m always looking for blogs that will give me plenty of ideas. My friend just told me about “Cooking With Mr. C.” on Facebook (also a blog). I just “Liked” his page. He dedicates November for all Thanksgiving ideas. I was hoping I may find some things on your blog this season too. Alana

    Beautiful pictures. This post speaks to me because it reminds me of my summer time in Morocco where we pick the clams from the shore and cook them for dinner. Here is a post about it if you are interested:

  9. Love your blog and am loving all the fresh seafood. Will pop back and search for some of your seafood recipes! Mary
