I am visiting my hometown Xiamen in China. Fresh oysters are harvested locally and are relatively plentiful. They are available all year round and are not considered to be a delicacy. It is time to spoil myself. Having oysters for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can never have too much of a good thing!

The locals usually cook the oysters to avoid the risk of raw seafood. There are many ways that you can cook it. BBQ oysters, oyster noodle soup, and fried oysters with eggs.

This soy sauce oyster is a very simple and classic Xiamen local dish that can not be found anywhere else. This recipe uses these flavor-packed Chinese ingredients: soy sauce, ginger, Chinese leek, and chili to enhance the sweetness of the oysters without losing out on nutrition.

  • The key to this recipe lies in the freshness of the oysters. Ensure that all the oysters are fresh, as the presence of even one or two spoilt ones can compromise the entire dish.
  • Chinese baby leeks can be challenging to find in my area, and if you’re facing the same issue, regular leeks make a suitable substitute.
  • The doneness of the oysters varies depending on your preferences. Whether you enjoy them semi-raw or fully cooked, feel free to adjust the cooking time to suit your liking.
