Oysters do not seem like a strange dish, but rocky mountain oysters definitely are. That is because rocky mountain oysters are not seafood and they’re not actually oysters. They are the testicles of a boar, bull or buffalo that are deep fried for your dining pleasure. Also referred to as Prairie Oysters, rocky mountain oysters are a dish that is enjoyed and loved by many who live in certain regions of Canada and the United States, particularly those areas in which there is a lot of cattle ranching. To prepare the dish, the chef must peel the testicles and then boil them. Afterwards they are coated in flower and are then fried and served with cocktail sauce or ketchup.
