It’s such a simple sandwich, yet when you sit down with one of these, it’s hard to imagine anything tasting better.

Yield: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 2 cups corn flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne
  • Salt to taste
  • 40 oysters, preferable from the Gulf Coast, shucked and drained
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 loaf (about 20″ long) soft French or Italian bread, halved lengthwise, then crosswise, lightly toasted
  • 16 slices dill pickle
  • 1 ripe tomato, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
Instructions
  1. Pour oil into a heavy medium pot to a depth of 2″ and heat over medium heat until temperature registers 350º on a candy thermometer.
  2. Meanwhile, combine corn flour, all-purpose flour, garlic powder, black pepper, cayenne, and salt to taste in a wide dish. Working in small batches, dredge oysters in flour mixture, shaking off excess, then deep-fry in the hot oil until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer oysters to a wire rack to let drain briefly.
  3. To assemble, spread mayonnaise on cut length of bread, then put half the pickles, oysters, tomatoes, and lettuce, in that order, on each bottom half. Place top halves of bread atop lettuce.
