Japanese Fried Oysters (Kaki Fry)

Busy day… hungry son… and this is what he asked for. I haven’t had these in FOREVER, so I’m glad he asked for them!

It was also my first try making these babies… I’m really glad that I didn’t mess them up. It would’ve been so sad to throw oysters away…

Check out the inside… yummmm!
