Japanese Fried Oysters

This fried oysters with eggs is a well known local dish. The ocean-fresh succulent oysters are cooked in a light sweet potato coating and complimented by the fresh corianders and eggs.


My hometown Xiamen sits the Fujian Province of China and has a great number of oyster farms along the coastline. Oysters are readily available in the market all year round, freshly shucked out of the shells and only cost approximately $8 USD per kg.
