The day after my graduation was a gorgeous sunny day, and I was sitting at a cafe with three of my university friends, talking about CVs and open positions. Nice was our first stop, we found a cozy seafood place for dinner and ordered oysters. Almost all of us were first-timers and soon realized that very few actually liked them. One thing that I love here, is that they often come with different types of dressings.
Oyster Sauté in Asian Sauce
Asian Dressed Oysters - Peter's Food Adventures
Chinese restaurants are known for their ability to turn out a high volume of dishes in a noticeably short time. You can use the same technique at home to replicate Chinese takeout or get a work-night dinner on the table in a hurry. This recipe for Chinese chicken with oyster sauce delivers the dish—without you needing to call for takeout. Speaking of takeout, you might want to make up a pot of white rice with this, too. Prepared oyster sauce , available at most grocery stores, adds the essence of oysters to this dish and the signature flavor associated with a number of Chinese dishes. Oyster sauce is a condiment comprised of oyster juices, salt, sugar; some versions include soy sauce thickened with cornstarch. The finished flavor of a recipe with oyster sauce—combined with all of the other ingredients—becomes more savory in taste than explicitly fishy.
Asian Dressed Oysters
I love eating freshly shucked oysters and especially love the different oyster dressing flavors. However, I'm not sure this method of preparing and eating oysters is traditionally Chinese. So Asian Dressed Oysters it is!
