Truly one of the best and most simple of dishes. Just put a bunch of Oysters in a zip-lock with panco, flour, salt and pepper. Red, White and Black pepper. The Oysters don’t need anything to get the fry mix to stick. Just throw them in a bag with this mixture. Then drop them in a cast iron skillet with vegetable oil heated to 350 degrees. When the Oysters float, let them keep floating till they are a golden brown. Get’em crisp and make a good tar-tar or some kind of tricked up sauce to dip them in.
So that’s what we did tonight. Fried Oysters and Gumbo made last Friday. Gonna make some pimento cheese soon. MF says my Grandpa used to have homemade “puhmenahcheez” with his Gumbo, all the time. I don’t remember. Bet it was good stuff.
Many years ago a friend made “puhmenaccheez” from scratch. All the ingredients came from a jar or can. But it was good.
Today you gotta roast your own red peppers, make your own mayo, get the best cheddar there is and then you got a good “puhmenahcheez”. It ain’t that much work and it’s really worth it. I will post a recipe soon.
