Deep Fried Oysters with Firecracker Sauce Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 24 oysters, shucked and in their own liquor
  • 4 cups peanut oil, for deep-frying
  • 4 cups Seafood Breading (see the recipe below)

  • In deep fryer or in a high-side saucepan on medium-high heat bring the oil up to a temperature of 350°F to 375°F (180°C to 190°C). Check your temperature with a candy thermometer or until a small cube of white bread dropped into the oil turns golden brown in 15 seconds.
