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.


  • 4 cups vegetable oil

  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten

  • 1 cup milk

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1 1/2 cups oysters, drained and chopped

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

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

  3. Whisk the eggs and milk together in a small bowl.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  7. Serve and enjoy!
