Oyster Po-Boys

Dear Chef,

Could you please share a great recipe for fried oyster po boys . . .  I've been wanting one ever since I was in Louisiana at the end of January.  Yummy.

Thank you!


Dear Erika: 

First get a fine French baguette and then
12 plump oysters
2 cups corn meal
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon 'Shut My Mouth' Creole Spices
1 egg
2 cups whole milk
1 tablespoon Maison Louisianne Creole Mustard
1 quart vegetable oil  such as rice bran oil

Heat oil in large iron pot.  When it gives off a light smoke, it is ready to cook the oysters. 

Mix milk, Creole Mustard, and egg in a bowl. 

Add salt and 'Shut My Mouth' Creole Spices to the corn meal. 

Place oysters in milk mixture, then place them in the corn meal mixture.

Deep-fry them in the vegetable oil for 3-4 minutes. 

Spread mayo, Creole Mustard, sliced lettuce, and a little lemon juice on the french bread, add oysters, and enjoy! 

Makes 2 Po-Boys.
