Twice Cooked Fried Oysters | 牡蠣の二度揚げ

‘Twice cooking method’ is a way which I often use for frying fish and seafood. I’ve never tried it on ‘oysters’ but often with small fish like horse mackerel which by cooking (frying) it twice enables the bones to soften yet retaining the crispness of the fish.

So applied to ‘oysters’ which come plump and big during the cold winter seasons in Japan. This cooking application was introduced through one of my favorite TV programs called ‘Tameshite Gatten (NHK broadcast)’. This program explores the unexpected cooking avenues, the non-norm way of thinking turning food into the most amazing tastes. It’s a great program but unfortunately all in Japanese, what a pity!

 

『牡蠣の二度揚げ』レシピ

またもや、、大好きな番組の一つ『ためしてガッテン』で放送された牡蠣の処理にシリーズをやってみました。二度揚げ手法はよく小アジや小魚でやりますが牡蠣をやったのは初めて。中はムチムチ、外側はカリカリ。とっても美味に仕上がりますよ。揚げる前に牡蠣を8分ほど塩茹しますが味が牡蠣の身が凝縮され美味しく仕上がります。

加熱用の牡蠣がとっても美味しいこの時期。

是非お試しあ〜れ。
