|1 pt. shucked oysters||4 c. all-purpose flour|
|1 c. cracker meal (or crushed crackers)||2 c. vegetable oil|
|2 tbsp butter||1 tbsp sea salt|
- Prepare the oysters. Combine the flour & cracker meal & dredge the oysters in the mixture. Let the oysters sit, refrigerated, for 20 minutes. Heat the oil to about 350°F on medium heat. Add in the butter (optional for flavor).
- Fry the oysters until crispy, about 1-2 minutes per side. The oysters are done when they are golden brown & crispy. Transfer the fried oysters to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with sea salt & serve hot with spicy cocktail sauce and lemon wedges.
Chef’s Note:This is a great recipe for the holidays and goes well as croutons on a salad or as part of the dressing in a Thanksgiving turkey!
