There’s a French restaurant in downtown Poughkeepsie that has the best fried oyster appetizer. The oysters are fried perfectly, nestled over a bell pepper relish and with a dab of garlic aioli over top. Scrumpdelish. It’s the kind of dish that you think about, almost obsessively, until you eat it again. I did muster up the nerve to ask the chef to share the recipe, but natch, he was tight-lipped.
After testing fried oyster recipes, I figured out the secret to frying oysters perfectly is combining flours, and perfecting fry time. And, I have perfected this favored fried oyster appetizer, and perhaps, I’ve perfected the recipe even better than I recalled. Here is the secret to frying oysters perfectly!
If you ever venture into our pantry, you may notice that I always have a few jars of mayonnaise on hand. And when I say a few, I’m talking at least 5 large jars. Thing is, I use mayonnaise in several recipes including salad dressings, dips, deviled eggs and even just alone. I’m a big fan of the stuff, staying loyal to one brand, Hellman’s. It’s my fave and although I’m not getting paid to toot their horn, I feel I would be remiss to write a post dedicated to mayo and not detail my recommended.
I’m in the test kitchen today, checking out a few different mayonnaise / aioli recipes to see if making homemade mayonnaise is worth it. You may be surprised at my conclusion.
