Fried Oyster Recipe

Halal version of Singapore Hawker Food, Fried Oyster (Or Luah). You should be able to find frozen oysters at the supermarkets if you decide you want to whip up this Singaporean hawker favourite treat.

Fried Oyster (Or Luah)

  • 10 shelled fresh or frozen oysters
  • 100 ml water (only if you are using frozen oysters)
  • 5 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 5 eggs (beaten)
  • Fish sauce
  • 5 tbsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • White pepper powder
  • Chopped spring onion and coriander
  • 2 slices of calamansi 
  • Sambal chili sauce

  1. If you are using canned oysters, collect the water from the can. You should have at least 100 ml of oyster juice. If you are using frozen oysters, soak the oysters in a bowl of water till soften. Pour away the water and rinse about till water run clean.
  2. Season the beaten eggs with a dash of fish sauce and set aside.
  3. To make your batter, mix the tapioca flour and rice flour with the 100 ml of water together in a bowl and slowly add in your oyster juice or water and set aside.
  4. Heat up your non stick frying pan with oil until smoking hot. Pour in half of your batter so that it forms a thin layer all over the pan. When it is brown and crispy, pour in your eggs. 
  5. Let it set for a moment until it is cooked then turn it over to cook on the other side. Once the other side is cooked, use your spatula to cut up the omelette into smaller pieces. Add in more oil, then pour in the rest of your batter all over the omelette. Do not let the batter turn hard. 
  6. Then add in the oysters and stir fried for 1 to 2 mins or until they are half-cooked. Do not over cooked the oysters as it will become hard.
  7. Serve the omelette on a plate. Top it with a dash of white pepper powder, a squeeze of calamansi juice and garnish with chopped spring onion and coriander. Nice to go with a dip sauce made with sambal chili sauce and calamansi juice.
