Crusty Oysters


  • 12 oz oysters, usually two 6-ounce jars

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp pepper

  • 3 tsp vegetable oil, divided

Oysters in a jar can be found in many grocery stores year round. Serve these with mashed potatoes or grilled polenta slices for change of pace.


  • Rinse and drain oysters.
  • Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a small dish.
  • Spray a nonstick skillet with vegetable oil spray, and then place 1 tsp (5mL) of oil in the pan. Heat pan until very hot.
  • Dredge oysters, one at a time in flour mixture. Place 4 oysters in hot pan and fry until brown on one side. Turn and brown the other side. This should take only about 3 minutes per side. Remove oysters and place on a serving dish.
