  • 225grms self raising flour

  • 1 egg, lightly whisked

  • 375mls beer

  • 1x 500ml tub of Oysters

  • Vegetable oil, to deep fry

  • Lemon wedges, to serve

  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh dill


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre.

  2. Pour in the beer, stirring constantly to make a smooth batter, about the consistency of thick pouring cream.

  3. Dry the oysters by placing each oyster in a heavy duty paper towel and rolling it around.

  4. Toss the oysters in the fresh dill and then sprinkle each with a light coating of flour.

  5. Heat sufficient oil in a deep fryer to 180°C. Dip the dill-coated oysters in the batter and pop straight into the deep fryer. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the oysters rise to the top, and are lightly golden. Drain on absorbent paper.

  6. Serve with Spicy Lemon Cream.

Spicy Lemon Cream

In a bowl mix together the grated rind of one lemon with 1 cup sour cream or creme fraiche and a good seasoning of tabasco sauce. If the sauce is too thick, thin with a little milk.
