I love oysters. They’re extremely nutrient rich, high in zinc, they taste amazing and they remind me of summer. I impulse bought a tin of shucked local oysters from Whole Foods the other day, and since I haven’t had fried oysters in a solid five years, decided to make some.


Paleo Fried Oysters


  • 12-14 oysters, about 8 oz
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp Old Bay
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • 2-3 tbsp coconut oil or lard


  1. Drain the oysters.
  2. Beat the egg in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Mix the tapioca, almond, Old Bay and set aside.
  4. Heat the coconut oil in a pan on medium high heat.
  5. Dip the oysters in the egg, then the flour mixture.
  6. Fry on each side until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  7. Serve with dipping sauce – I mixed homemade mayo, ketchup and Old Bay together.
