Blackened Fried Oysters With Lemon Cocktail Sauce

Blackened Fried Oysters With Lemon Cocktail Sauce created by Peter J

The secret is to use the freshest oyster you can find. These are pan fried, not sauted. Use plenty of oil and keep it hot to keep them crispy on the outside and plump and juicy on the inside. Using a cast iron skillet is best. Servings depend of use...main dish or appetizer.

    Yum! The sauce had a really nice tang and the coating was beautiful and held together really well while frying. Local fresh oysters where I live are very good but not all that large, so I used half the quantity for a dozen and popped them back in the shell with the sauce for presentation.
