Panko Fried Read Island Oysters, with a Squeeze of Lemon. Day 6 of the 12 Days of Canapés – 2013

Well… Here we are at day six! Half way through!

A good time to reflect on this year’s canapé choices. Funny thing, this year, I have noticed that I have chosen more rustic recipes. There are no recipes that feature meat. So far there have been no fancy, pricey, hard to find ingredients.

These are not conscious choices. More of a reflection of how I (and so many of you) have been eating this past year.

Freshly shucked, panko crusted fried oysters with a squeeze of lemon are pretty much the perfect “canapé” for me. Crunchy, briny, and with a hit of citrus, I can’t think of anything better. Shucking some smallish, local, oysters which results in a higher ratio of the crispy batter to the soft, briny meat, is the key to this recipe.

Six canapés still to come!

  1. I’m typically not a fan of fried oysters, preferring my oysters raw, but –wow– these look delicious.
