My dad loves to have a good old southern fish/seafood fry. This is the recipe he uses for fried oysters.

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.
