Fried Oysters

While there are many ways to enjoy oysters, the fried variety is always a popular crowd-pleaser. Frying gives you the salty taste of the oyster along with the more mild and familiar taste of a good breading. Like all the recipes I share, this one is simple and tasty!

While you probably would not drain and rinse a fresh oyster from the shell, oysters that are already shucked and in liquid can be rinsed in a strainer and patted dry before frying.

How to Fry Oysters

It’s not as intimidating as you might think to deep fry oysters. Here are the steps!

  1. Rinse and drain oysters in a colander. Pat dry.
  2. Add buttermilk to a bowl.
  3. In another bowl add seafood breader with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mix.
  4. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat using about an inch depth of oil. You’ll know it’s ready when a little bit of the breader sprinkled in starts to sizzle.
  5. Dip a few oysters into buttermilk then dredge in seafood breader mix, coating well in each.
  6. Add oysters in batches, turning once during frying until golden brown on all sides. Remove quickly with a metal spoon as they will cook almost instantly.
  7. Optional: Garnish with green onions and serve with lemon wedges on the side.

Can you freeze fried oysters?

Once you fry your oysters, you should be able to layer them in a container with wax paper in between and keep them in the freezer for a couple of months. Heat them up in the oven when ready to serve.

How to Reheat Fried Oysters

Fried oysters can be reheated in the oven. Set it to 350 degrees and start at 5 minutes. Since they’re small it should not take long to heat them up. It is recommended that food be heated to 165 degrees for safety.

Fried oysters can be served on their own with cocktail sauce or a dip of your preference. They are also tasty on a salad or in a po’boy sandwich. It’s also popular to coat them in buffalo sauce like chicken wings and dip them in homemade blue cheese dressing. I like to drizzle them with a layer of wing sauce or even barbecue sauce and a layer of blue cheese dressing like below. (And you’ll also notice blue cheese dressing is pictured in some of the other photos as well).

Consider serving them with my tangy southern coleslaw or alongside other appetizers like fried okra.
