  3. Soak the shrimp in oysters in ice water for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile combine the mustard, water and a pinch of all the spices to make a thin paste.
  4. Combine the flour, corn flour, dried herbs and spices for the batter. Place in a paper back or medium size container with a lid.
  5. Coat the oysters and shrimp in the mustard sauce, then drop into the dry, seasoned flour mixture and shake to fully coat.
