Oyster Cakes

MyCookbook Recipe Database
MyCookbook Member: brucen
Recipe Category: Appetizer
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
    An unusual flavor combination-oysters, and scallion - with a crispness that make these little cakes a delightful extra at large Eastern meal. Nice as an appetizer too.

    4 eggs, slighly beaten
    1/4 cup oyter liquid
    1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper
    5 scallions, minced
    4 Tbsp flour
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 pint (2 cups) shucked oysters, drained, chopped
    3 cups oil
    6 Tbsp vinegar
    3 tsp chili sauce

    In a medium bowl mix eggs, oyster liquid, salt, pepper and scallions. Stir in flour and baking powder, Fold in chopped oysters. Place batter by the stove, with a Chinese sieve or a slotted spoon. Set paper-lined serving dish in 250 deg oven.
    Set wok over high heat for 30 seconds, pour in oil, heat to 350 deg or until a drip of batter sizzles. Drop batter by tablespoonful into oil and fry golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Cook only as many as will float freely in oil at a time. Scoop out with sieve, drain, keep warm. Serve with vinegar and chili sauce combined.
    Serves 4 , more if other dishes are offered.
