We developed this recipe back when we still had hard boiled eggs kicking around from Easter. We knew we wanted to do something with the eggs, but more than just sticking a fried oyster on top of a deviled egg (one idea we thought about). After some back and forth, and little testing, we came up with this delicious take: Crispy oysters dressed with deviled egg filling.
Here we have a lightly fried oyster atop a crispy tortilla chip, then topped with a bit of avocado and deviled egg filling. To up the savory, we added Kewpie sesame dressing and nutritional yeast to the deviled egg filling, and to give it a kick topped the whole thing with a dash of hot sauce. The crunch of the chip…with the crisp of the oyster…with the savory of the deviled egg filling…WHOA. New winner right here!

Deviled egg filling:
-5 hard boiled eggs
-1/3 cup mayo
-1/3 cup Kewpie roasted sesame dressing (just use mayo here if you don’t want to/can’t find this specialty ingredient)
-3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
Remove the egg yolks from the eggs and mash with the rest of the ingredients. Once the mixture is softened, whip with a fork to create a custard like consistency. Set aside in the refrigerator while frying oysters.
Fried oysters (for these, keeping in mind the topping, we kept the breading unseasoned):
-12 freshly shucked oysters, par boiled
-1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup corn meal mixed
-1 egg, beaten
Dip the par boiled oyster in the egg, dredge in flour and corn mean mixture, and fry over medium heat in a light oil.
-Your favorite hot sauce
-The fried oysters
-The deviled egg filling
Cut the avocado into thin slices and place each slice on a tortilla chip. Top this with a fried oyster and a dollop of the deviled egg filling. Add a drop of hot sauce and enjoy! Use the remaining egg whites for things like salads, or a buttered toast topping.
