I love oysters, raw, cooked, smoked or any way I can get them. Pan fried is easy, fast and really good. I can eat this by myself easily. Maybe I should double or triple this??

Fantastic. Instead of cornmeal I used Italian bread crumbs. Mixed the garlic in with the dried ingredients. I prepared the oysters ahead of time and put on waxed paper and in the frig for an hour before cooking. I cooked them longer than 40 seconds, wanting to be sure they were fully cooked. They tasted great. Will cook again, and again.

Great technique. I subbed bread crumbs for cornmeal (didn't have) and also added a little Old Bay seasoning to the flour mixture.Thanks for recipe.

I added some cajun seasoning to mine. I wasn't sure when to add the minced garlic so it went it with the oysters. The oysters I used were quite large and I think this would have been better if I had cut them in half. Thanks for sharing this very quick and easy recipe.
