Air Fried Garlic Butter Oysters

Recipes / Air Fried Garlic Butter Oysters



Enjoy delicious, savory oysters right from your air fryer.


  • ¾ cup Louisiana Fish Fry Products Air Fryer Fish Seasoned Coating Mix
  • ½ cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (or other hard cheese)
  • ¼ cup Louisiana Fish Fry Products Garlic Butter sauce
  • 12 oysters in their shell

For garnish, if desired:

  • Lemon wedges
  • Freshly minced parsley


In a small bowl, combine Air Fryer Fish Coating Mix and grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and mix well. Shuck fresh oysters, putting the oyster meat and juices in a small bowl and the shells in another. Wash and clean the bottom cupped oyster shells. Make small rings out of tinfoil to hold the oyster shells level in the air fryer basket. Preheat air fryer to 365°F. Add tinfoil rings to the basket – only enough to fit in one layer. Add a bottom shell to each ring, add one teaspoon of Garlic Butter Sauce to each shell, add one oyster belly to each shell and top each with one tablespoon of the Air Fryer Fish Coating and cheese mixture. Place basket into air fryer and cook for 5-7 minutes, checking a few times for doneness. When the sauce is bubbling and the topping is golden brown remove oysters to a platter and garnish with chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon.


Select Great Oysters

You want live oysters only. They should be closed or, if already open, they should close when the shell is tapped. Look for a briny and good heft, which means there’s still seawater inside. Wait to shuck until close to serving time, no more than an hour or so before.
