Oyster Po'boy

My mouth is watering just thinking about this!


Canola oil, for frying
2 tbsp. kosher salt, plus more to taste
1 tbsp. ground black pepper
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1½ tsp. onion powder
¾ tsp. dried thyme
¾ tsp. dried rosemary
¾ tsp. dried oregano
¾ tsp. cayenne pepper
¾ tsp. chipotle chile powder
40 large oysters, shucked
2 cups yellow cornmeal
4 8″-long French bread rolls
Mayonnaise, shredded iceberg lettuce, tomato slices, and dill pickle chips, for serving.

Pour oil to a depth of 2″ in a 6-qt. Dutch oven and heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer reads 350°. Whisk together salt, pepper, paprika, garlic and onion powders, thyme, rosemary, oregano, cayenne, and chile powder in a bowl; add oysters and toss to coat with seasoning. Add cornmeal and toss until oysters are evenly coated; dust off excess cornmeal. Working in batches, add oysters to oil; fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain, and sprinkle with salt. Spread insides of rolls with mayonnaise, and divide oysters among rolls; top with lettuce, tomato, and pickles.

Sorry for all the comments in a row- but I've missed visiting blogs and am having fun catching up on your posts, Teresa! I'm bookmarking this recipe. It looks and sounds delicious. And I like that I can make the oysters as is and they'll be gluten free! Thanks for sharing. Can't wait to make this :)
