1. Can you eat oysters on keto diet?

Many people feel anxious, they believe that oysters should not be eaten on a keto plan because oysters contain carbs.

There are indeed carbs in oysters, but the amount of carbs is not much, even very little. You can safely add oysters to your keto menu if you like. In fact, 100 grams of raw oysters contain only 4.95 grams of carbohydrates. In more detail, each oyster weighs only about 8 grams on average.

When you do a simple calculation, if you eat 100 grams of oysters (about 12.5 oysters), you will only have 4.95 grams of carbs. It's completely within the limits of the keto diet.

Oysters are also an easy-to-find cooking ingredient; you can find them at any seafood market. At some coasts with suitable living conditions for oysters, you can catch wild oysters.

Instructions for keto fried oysters

fried oysters keto

  1. Rinse the oysters, then cut them into bite-sized pieces (you can leave the whole oyster to fry, I choose not to cut it to make it easier to fry). Place the oysters on a plate and pat the oysters dry with a paper towel.
  2. Place almond flour and parmesan cheese in a bowl and mix well.
  3. Crack the eggs into a medium-sized bowl and beat the eggs.
  4. Take the dried oysters and coat them with a mixture of almond flour and Parmesan. Then dip the oysters in the beaten egg and then dip it in the flour and cheese mixture. The second time you dip the oysters in the flour, you need to dip them more carefully to coat the outside of the oyster fully. Do the same with the rest of the oysters until the end.
  5. Heat oil in a large saucepan over high heat. When the oil is boiling, bubbles appear, reduce the heat a little, and gently add the breaded oysters.
  6. Fry each side until all sides turn golden brown. Pay attention to the amount of oil while frying so that the outer crust does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  7. Once the oysters are cooked, transfer to a plate with absorbent paper to absorb excess oil.
  8. Serve immediately!
