Vegan Buttermilk Air-Fried Oysters
Vegan Air-Fried Oysters Recipe
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
- Set air fryer to 400F.
- Wash, rinse and dry the oyster pieces.
- In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the “buttermilk.” In a separate large bowl, mix together the ingredients for the dry ingredients.
- PRO-TIP:marinate the oysters in the buttermilk for 10 – 15 minutes. This will help them become more moist and help the flour to stick to the oyster better. After marinating, gently shake the oysters free from the buttermilk and place on a plate.
- Dip each oyster in the buttermilk bowl, then the flour bowl, then the buttermilk bowl AGAIN, and then the flour bowl AGAIN, and then onto the air-fryer basket. Repeat.
- Once all the oysters are in the basket, generously spray them with avocado oil (or grapeseed, coconut or any other high smoke point oil).
- Cook them in increments of 5 minutes for 15 minutes. Every 5 minutes, I either flip them over AND/OR lightly spray any pieces that still have “white” flour to ensure they are frying in the basket. Repeat if you have to do this in batches.
- Enjoy fresh out of the air fryer with some flaked sea salt and your choice of plant based dipping sauce. I mixed plain almond yogurt with garlic powder, onion powder, lemon and chives for a super delicious treat!
