Best Oyster Appetizer Recipe

Best Oyster Appetizer Recipe: Mega Crunch Fried Oysters

Seafood platters are one of my favorite things in the world and at home when I make one, I include my best oyster appetizer recipe which is totally out of this world. I get a lot of raves and awesome compliments when I have visitors at home. My children love to eat it for snacks and it is perfect as a starter for sophisticated dinners at home. My recipe is called: Mega Crunch Fried Oysters.

An oyster is a name that commonly refers to various groups of shelled mollusks who live in the ocean and in brackish waters. The varieties of oysters that can be eaten are favored a lot for their taste and texture. It is believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac for many people, for a very long time.

Are you planning to cook for your beloved? Make sure to have some oysters in the menu. You can eat oysters cooked or you can even eat them raw but in my opinion, I much prefer it when they are fried in many ways. I mean, who doesn’t love fried food? Anyway, oysters can be coated with various kinds of coatings and batters including cracker meal, flour, corn meal, breadcrumbs, and other concocted mixtures.

However, if you want them really crispy, panko breadcrumbs should be used. It becomes one of the best easy party appetizers if they are cooked to that special crispiness because even if the party goes on all night, the crisp holds up.
