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.

I love oysters. They’re extremely nutrient-rich, high in zinc, they taste amazing and they remind me of summer. I haven’t had fried oysters in a solid five years, decided to make some Paleo Fried Oysters! These are gluten-free and so much healthier than anything you get at a restaurant!

    The best fried oyster in along time. This was quick and very flavorful. Did not take away from the succulent oysters. I will make these next time oysters go on sale.
