The Essie Collection: Luxe Effects Tapioca Pearls



Luxe effects collection

  • Colors: Shine of the times, set in stones, as gold as it gets, a cut above, pure pearlfection
  • Dish: fried oyster on the shell topped with jumbo tapioca pearls


  • A dozen oysters, with shells if desired for presentation
  • Seaweed salad if desired for presentation
  • 2 dozen tapioca pearls
  • shallots
  • red wine vinegar
  • white flour
  • salt, pepper, garlic, paprika
  • 2 eggs
  • sriracha
  • bread crumbs

For the tapioca pearls, they will need to be soaked in the vinegar with the shallots, chopped finely, preferably overnight. This will give a tiny bit of briny flavor.

For the oysters, use my basic fry technique of dipping them in flour, then in the eggs + sriracha whisked together, then dipped in seasoned bread crumbs (with salt, pepper, garlic and paprika, to taste).

To serve, clean the shells well, place on a bed of seaweed salad, or crushed ice, or salt, or small pebbles, put the fried oysters back in their shells and top with pearls. Pure Pearlfection!
