    fraxinus's Note:

    This is the oyster breading recipe I use in my restaurant. I use these for the basis of many recipes. As I live close to the ocean and one of the largest producers of oysters in North America is 15 min from me I feel ok about buying the oysters from them. This recipe uses fresh shucked oysters. The oysters are breaded then frozen raw and can be cooked from raw without thawing. I use this base for making oyster burgers which I will also post.

    8. 8
      When you want a pan fried oyster, heat a frying pan with a tight fitting lid to medium heat and add 2 tbsp margarine. Take out as many as you want, place in the pan and let brown for 3 minute Flip the oysters, turn up the heat to high, pour in 2 tbsp water and cover with the lid. Fry for 4 minute Take off the lid (the heat from the steam will cook the oysters) Their should be a cloud of steam when you take off the lid. The oysters will now be soft. Cook for another 3 min on each side.

      why are we adding water and creating steam for a "pan fried" oyster?
