Pan Fried Oysters

IMG_1146Oysters are something you either love them or hate them.  I love them and there is nothing like a batch fresh fried oysters.  What makes the difference is what you use for breading.  Do not use bread crumbs.  For the breading use Cracker Meal.  It is very simple to do, you just need to take your time and let them sit for a at least 30 minutes before you fry them up.

1 can of fresh shucked oysters drained
2 eggs beaten
2 cups cracker meal
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil
Dip oysters in egg and then dredge in cracker meal.  Squeeze the oyster and flatten it in the cracker meal.  Once it is covered place on a plate.  Repeat until all the oysters are breaded.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, cover with tin foil and set in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.  When you are ready to fry them up, pour enough vegetable oil in frying pan until the bottom is covered.  Place oysters in pan and fry until golden brown.  Serve with cocktail sauce, CHEERS !!!
