These oyster fritters are made with a thick batter and lots of chopped oysters.  They make a great snack or appetizer with tartar sauce or cocktail sauce.


  • vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 cups flour, 10 ounces (dip and sweep)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups oysters, drained and chopped


Heat about 1 to 2 inches of oil in a deep heavy skillet to about 365°.

Whisk the eggs and milk together in a small bowl.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt in another bowl and blend well.  Add the egg and milk mixture and blend with a spoon until smooth.

Stir the chopped oysters into the batter and drop by spoonful into the hot fat. A cookie scoop works well to keep them small and round.

Cook in batches, turning to brown both sides. Drain on paper towels.

Serves 4 to 6.
