Crispy Oysters W/ Chile Dipping Sauce

Crispy Oysters W/ Chile Dipping Sauce


  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 cup fine cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 quart iced soda water
  • 1 dozen shucked Chesapeake Bay Oysters
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup naturally brewed soy sauce
  • 3 Thai bird chiles, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Mixed greens, for plating


  1. Preheat a fryer or wok filled 1/2 way with oil to 400 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, Old Bay and slowly add the soda until a pancake batter consistency is achieved. Dip each oyster in the batter and fry until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes. Season lightly with salt. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the vinegar, soy, chiles, sugar and sesame oil.

  2. PLATING: Cover a large platter with greens and place a small bowl of dipping sauce in the middle. Surround with hot oysters.
