Fritters is a traditional southern dish. This oyster fritters recipe is very good made with a homemade batter.
48 shucked oysters with liquid
6 eggs, beaten
4 tablespoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of oregano
1 teaspoon of crushed black pepper
2 teaspoons of hot sauce or Tabasco
2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of old bay seasoning
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/2 cup of vegetable or peanut oil
Melt the butter in a large pan on medium heat. Saute the oysters about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove the oysters from the pan and cut them into quarter pieces.
In another large pan, preheat a skillet to high heat and add the 1/2 cup of oil.
While the oil is heating up, mix all the other ingredients into a bowl including the liquid from the oysters. You can control the thickness of the fritter batter by adding additional oyster liquid. Place the quartered oysters into the batter.
Drop about a tablespoon of batter for each fritter into the pre-heated oil and fry the fritters until they are golden brown in color. Serve immediately.
