Oyster Po Boy

As  you know, I’m quite fond of oysters, and frankly can’t go too long with cooking them in some fashion. Generally whenever I do a ‘fish fry’ I’ll throw in some oysters and fry them up as well– but I had not, as of yet eaten them in an Oyster Po Boy sandwich…well until now. It was so pleasingly pleasant to partake of   🙂

I really didn’t do any precise measuring of the seasonings used…just kind of  ‘went with it’  so use your favorite seasonings to your own discretion.


For the tartar sauce I combined a little mayo, Dijon mustard, a little relish, fresh cracked black pepper and a smigeon of  creole seasoning…pretty simple. I used white cornmeal with onion powder, garlic powder, a little black pepper,  Old Bay seasoning and Tony Chachere’s Creole seasoning. Mixed it well, coated the oysters and fried in canola oil until lightly golden

Garnished with scallions, fresh parsley and sliced red chili just for the spice of it. Slathered a little extra virgin olive on an Italian style sesame seeded bun and gave it a little toast

Good Eats! The heat from the sliced red chili was not overwhelming as I did not include any of the seeds.  Love on a Bun!

Home grown red chili peppers. I’ll have to make a nice red sauce with these

    Oysters are my all time favorite but I usually can’t bear to do anything with them other than have them raw off the half-shell. Still… I have always wanted to try an oyster po’boy. I’ve read about them but never seen them in a restaurant in this part of the world…. just have to make one I guess 🙂

    And I have yet to try them on the half-shell with a little squeeze of lemon. Well I guess it’s time for us to both try them differently 🙂
