“Another great po'boy. My husband loves this one! Try and find a thick crusty French bread to make it more like the real ones we have in Louisiana. If you don't want to make po boys, just enjoy them fried.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 dozen medium to large shucked oysters, in their liquor (about 3 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons chef paul prudhomme's seafood magic spices
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • your favorite tartar sauce


  1. Place oysters and oyster liquor in large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the Seafood Magic® to oysters, stirring well.
  2. In medium bowl, combine flour, corn flour, cornmeal and the remaining 1 tablespoon Seafood Magic®.
  3. Heat 2 inches or more of oil in deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375°F Drain oysters and then use a slotted spoon to toss them lightly and quickly in seasoned flour mixture (so oysters don't produce excess moisture, which cakes the flour); shake off excess flour and carefully slip each oyster into hot oil.
  4. Fry in single layer in batches just until crispy and golden brown, 1 to 1-1/2 minutes; do not overcook. (Adjust heat as needed to maintain temperature at about 375°). Drain on paper towels.
  5. Cut open French bread and bake in 350° oven for 3 minutes. Smear your favorite tarter sauce on bottom and top of French bread. On bottom half, load up the oysters--don't be stingy. Place lettuce and tomatoes on top bun; close and serve.
  6. Uou may have to gently press the bottom and top bread together to eat it better.
