|Wheat germ and herb crusted baked oysters|
Recipe (Serves 2):
8 ounces shucked oysters (4-6 jumbo oysters)
1/4 cup wheat germ
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons Italian herb seasoning
2 egg whites
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In one bowl, mix together wheat germ, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and Italian herb seasoning to create a breading mixture. In another bowl, whisk together the two egg whites. Once the shucked oysters are drained, coat each oyster in egg whites followed by the breading mixture. Arrange coated oysters on a baking sheet. Bake oysters for 15 minutes, or until crispy golden brown.
They came out so delicious! Crispy, crunchy, and flaky on the outside--- warm, soft, and tender on the inside. Paired with a spicy jalapeno dipping sauce, I was in healthy eats heaven tonight! I'm ringing in the New Year right--- are you?
