Fried Oysters

The entire family likes these fried oysters.  Living in Virginia gives us the opportunity to have them whenever we wish.  However, It is a family tradition dating to our parents time that we have fried oysters every Christmas morning.  We also enjoy them at other times of the year as well.

 

Ingredients


cup evaporated milk

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon paprika

2 eggs

2 tablespoons water

Panko bread crumbs (can use crushed saltines; use food processor)

extra virgin olive oil

fresh lemons

Cooking Method


Pour the extra virgin olive oil into a skillet to about -inch deep and heat the oil to 350 F.

 

Place the shucked oysters in a bowl and cover them with the milk. 

  1. In a second bowl combine the flour, salt and paprika.

  2. In a third bowl whisk the eggs and water.

  3. In a fourth bowl place the bread crumbs.

  4. Dip the oysters one-at-time in the flour, then the egg mixture, then the bread crumbs and place in the oil. 

  5. Fry until the oysters are brown about 2 minutes.

Place the cooked oysters on a paper towel or brown paper bag to drain.

 

Serve hot with lemons.
