I have to admit, I won't eat a raw oyster, not even if you paid me lots of money. Fried on the other hand, I just can't get enough.

This is the way we like ours fried, hope you enjoy!

Only difference in our house is the dipping sauce. He likes his with a cocktail sauce and I like mine with the Chipotle Lime Dipping sauce.


Thanks to Homesick Texan for this wonderful dipping sauce.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
OYSTERS: In a heavy pot, over medium heat, add 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil and heat to 350 degrees F. NOTE: I use an electric deep fryer.
2
In a shallow bowl, combine the flour and cornmeal with the all purpose seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper.
3
Drain oysters well. In a medium bowl, pour the buttermilk over the oysters. Lift the oysters out of the buttermilk, letting any excess drip off, and dredge them in the seasoned flour mixture.
4
Fry them in batches, turning them often, until golden, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
5
CHIPOTLE LIME DIPPING SAUCE: In a small bowl, mix together chipotle, adobo sauce, mayonnaise, cilantro lime juice, and cumin. Taste and add salt, and adjust seasonings. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
6
COCKTAIL SAUCE: Mix all ingredients together.
