“Well, we all know what oysters do to a love life. These are really outta sight and will put you on another taste bud orbit. Check it out.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 dozen medium to large shucked oysters, in their liquor (about 3 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons seafood seasoning
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • vegetable oil, for deep-frying


  1. Place oysters and oyster liquor in large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of the Seafood Magic to oysters, stirring well. IN medium bowl, combine flour, corn flour, cornmeal and the remaining Seafood Magic. Heat 2 inches or more of oil in deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees. 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. Fry in single layer in batches just until crispy and golden brown, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes; do not overcook. Drain on papertowel and serve.
