      The flavor of these was good (love the addition of the cayenne), but I had a problem with the coating coming off the oysters. I think maybe my oil wasn't hot enough, so I'm going to try this recipe again making sure the oil is quite hot before adding the oysters.

      NurseDi, this recipe brings back great memories. My Dad, like yours, loved Southern Fried Oysters. My Mom would make them JUST for him; and cuz he loved them--I grew to love them too. Mom would sometime used finely ground saltines in place of the cornmeal. Thanks for posting this; I'm on my way to the seafood store to taste those memories as well.
