Cheese crackers make an unusual, savory coating for these fried oysters.


  • 1 1/2 cups crushed cheese crackers
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed oregano
  • fat, for deep frying
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 pint oysters, for deep frying


Mix cracker crumbs with paprika and oregano; set aside. Beat eggs with water. Dip oysters into eggs then roll in crumbs. Place on waxed paper for 30 to 45 minutes to set crust. Fry hot fat, 370 degrees, until crusty, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Garnish with lemon wedges and dill pickles, if desired. Serve with tartar sauce.
Serves 4.

F-ing Amazing!!!, Member american_chicken

I tried this recipe out tonight and loooooved it!!! Don't be afraid to add a bit of Cayene pepper for some heat. A tasty extra: homemade buttermilk ranch dressing to dip these fried oysters in will definitely make you want to die and go to heaven.
