Not often is it desirable or necessary to cook oysters, but the ocean-dwelling Pacific variety from Tasmania or South Australia can withstand a flash of heat without detriment to its flavour or texture. These fritters taste like a mouthful of surf and have a great texture, both of which are complemented by the saltiness of the blackbeans in the dressing. Do not use creamy rock oysters or flat belon (angasi) oysters for this dish, as their texture and taste will be lost in the translation.</
