  • 1 lb. mussel meat meat removed from the shell
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/ 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 3 teaspoon salt
  • 2 to 3 cups cooking oil


  • Sprinkle 2 teaspoons of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper on the mussel meat. Mix well and then let it stand for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the batter by combining 3/4 cup flour, cornstarch, eggs, water, garlic powder, and remaining salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Mix well until the texture becomes smooth.
  • Heat the oil in a deep cooking pot.
  • Dip the mussel meat in the batter and then dredge in the remaining flour. This will prevent the mussel meat from sticking to each other.
  • Deep fry the coated mussel meat in medium heat until the color of the coating turns golden brown.
  • Serve with garlic sauce. Share and Enjoy!
