    Fried Oysters

    Source of Recipe

    My own, with some internet advice

    Recipe Introduction

    I came up with this recipe after doing a lot of research online. The coating is really perfect thin and crisp. It works better to use 2 pans to fry the oysters you want to cook them at a fairly high temp and after a couple of batches, the cornmeal that is left in the oil tends to burn and adversely affect the flavor.

    List of Ingredients

    2 c. cornmeal
    1 t. sugar
    1 t. salt
    1 t. pepper
    1 t. Old Bay
    2 pints oysters, drained
    Peanut oil for cooking


    Place the oysters in buttermilk.

    Mix together the first 5 ingredients. Drain the oysters. Dredge in the cornmeal mixture and then get off as much of the excess dredge as you can. Heat oil to 370F. Fry oysters, a few at a time, until browned and crisp. This should only take a couple of minutes.

    Serve with cocktail sauce or remoulade.

    Serves 4-6.
