DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the buttermilk, beaten egg, hot sauce, 1 teaspoon of basil, granulated garlic and white pepper and mix well. Add the oysters and any liquid from shucking. Cover and refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the panko, cornmeal, flour, remaining basil, granulated garlic, cayenne, 1 teaspoons salt, pepper and paprika and mix well.
  • Heat the oil to 350 degrees F in a large cast-iron skillet.
  • Drain the oysters from the buttermilk mixture and dredge through the breading mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Carefully add to the hot oil in batches, to not crowd, and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and season with the remaining kosher salt while hot.
