Our business continued to flourish and we soon outgrew the Mt Roskill Premises. We moved to our current purpose built building in Henderson in 1996.

Our Favourite Recipes
We had an oyster feed in our winery this Spring. I have never had oysters that tasted this good before. They were so easy to make and so absolutely delicious! Pan frying delivers a delightfully fresh tasting oyster within a crispy light crust.
Recipe Type: Oysters, Seafood
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 minutes
- 12 large fresh (live) oysters, shucked*
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 cup bread crumbs**
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- Lemon Wedges
- Hot sauce
* Learn How To Shuck Oysters. May also used fresh-shucked bottled oysters (found in the refrigerator section of the meat section), if desired.
** Check out Making Homemade Bread Crumbs. Use may also substitute soda cracker crumbs, cornmeal, and/or Panko crumbs for the bread crumbs. You can also mix any of these in the the bread crumbs. Your choice!
Place shucked oysters in a colander to drain.
Dip drained oysters in beaten eggs, and then in bread crumbs seasoned with salt and pepper (coating each oyster thoroughly). Set aside to dry at least 1/2 hour. NOTE: An easy way to coat the oysters with the bread crumbs is to place the crumbs in a resealable plastic bag, add egg-dipped oysters, seal bag, and then shake.
Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan (I like to use my cast-iron frying pan) to 370 degrees F. or until quite hot.
Fry oysters until golden brown on one side, then turn over each oysters carefully to brown the other side, approximately 1 to 2 minutes on each side Fry oyster until golden brown and edges are curled.
Do not overcook or overcrowd in frying pan. Remove from frying pan and serve immediately.
Serve with Lemons Wedges, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and/or your favorite hot sauce.
Our favorite way to eat pan-fried oysters
Place an oyster (or oysters) on a slice of good-quality French bread, squeeze a little fresh lemon juice on the oyster, and then add your favorite hot sauce. So good!
