For the wasabi cream dip:


In a bowl, pour whipping cream, add the wasabi and whisk till stiff.

Open the oysters and drain the water. With a sharp knife, cut of the oyster off. In a medium pan, heat 3" of oil until approx. 350F. Place each oyster in a teaspoon, dip in the batter until coated all over. Fry in oil until golden. The fritters will puff up instantly. Fry oysters by batches (5 by batch). Drain on kitchen towel before serving.
