Cornmeal Fried Oysters recipe – 116 calories


Fried oysters
12 shucked oysters
1/2 cup cornmeal
vegetable oil (for frying)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon paprika
salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Chipotle mayonnaise
1 teaspoon chopped chipotle chile
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon adobo sauce
2 tablespoons chopped coriander
salt, to taste

1. In a dish, combine cornmeal, flour, thyme, paprika, salt and pepper. Toss the oysters in the cornmeal mixture.
2. Heat enough oil to film the base of a skillet on high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the oysters (without crowding the pan).
3. Sauté the oysters for about 1-2 minutes (or until the coating is browned). Remove immediately to a serving dish. Add more oil as needed to fry the remainder.
4. To make the chipotle mayonnaise: combine the mayo, chipotle peppers and adobo sauce. Season with salt and stir in the coriander.
5. Serve the hot fried oysters with chipotle mayonnaise.
