Oysters in a jar can be found in many grocery stores year round. Serve these with mashed potatoes or grilled polenta slices for change of pace.
- 12 oz oysters, usually two 6-ounce jars
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup cornmeal
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 3 tsp vegetable oil, divided
- Rinse and drain oysters.
- Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a small dish.
- Spray a nonstick skillet with vegetable oil spray, and then place 1 tsp (5mL) of oil in the pan. Heat pan until very hot.
- Dredge oysters, one at a time in flour mixture. Place 4 oysters in hot pan and fry until brown on one side. Turn and brown the other side. This should take only about 3 minutes per side. Remove oysters and place on a serving dish.
- Heat one more tsp (15mL) of oil in the pan and repeat the process for another 4 oysters. Repeat for the last batch.
- Serve while piping hot.
