Chef Lance Fegen serves up these oyster devils at Houston’s BRC Gastropub, which give a simple deviled egg recipe a major kick from a crunchy fried oyster and a slice of bacon on top. The idea of an indulgent deviled egg gets taken to a whole new level with these bad boys.

Ingredients

  • hard-cooked eggs, peeled, cut in half, and yolks mashed in a bowl
  • 1/4  Cup  mayonnaise
  • 2  Tablespoons  olive oil
  • 2  Tablespoons  chopped pickles
  • 1  Teaspoon  mustard
  • 4-6  cooked slices of bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 12  oysters, soaked in buttermilk for a few hours
  • 1  Cup  flour
  • 1  Tablespoon  garlic powder
  • 2  Teaspoons  chili powder
  • 1  Teaspoon  paprika
  • Canola oil, for frying
  • Smoked paprika, for garnish
  • Chopped parsley, for garnish

Directions

Add the mayonnaise, olive oil, pickles, and mustard to the mashed yolks. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add more mayonnaise if necessary (depending on the size of yolks). Using a spoon or a piping bag, fill the egg halves with the yolk mixture. 

In a bowl, combine the flour and seasonings. Remove the oysters from the buttermilk and shake off excess liquid. Dredge in the flour mixture.

Heat 2 inches of the oil in a deep skillet to 350 degrees. Fry the oysters for about 1 minute, depending on the size of the oyster, just until you see a bit of color on the flour. Remove and drain on a paper towel.

Garnish each deviled egg with a dash of smoked paprika and sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley, then top with an oyster and piece of bacon.

Oyster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
