Fried Oysters

This is one of Tim’s favorite things in the whole world. I call them sea boogers. Hope ya’ll enjoy this dish.

Tim’s Fried Oysters:

Peanut oil/olive oil for frying
3 dozen shucked oysters

1 1/2 cups cornmeal

1/2 cup flour
2 teaspoons sea salt

1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon garlic powder
Cayenne pepper to taste

Fill a deep fryer three quarters full with peanut oil/olive oil, and heat to 350 degrees. Drain the oysters and place on paper towels to dry. Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Dredge the oysters in the dry ingredients, knocking off any excess, and fry in the hot oil a dozen at a time until done. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with cocktail sauce or on fluffy rolls for po boys.
