Oysters Fritters

  1 pint shucked Oysters
   2 cups all-purpose Flour
   1 Tbsp Baking Powder
   1 1/2 tsp Salt
   2 Eggs
   1 cup Milk
   1 Tbsp Butter
   1 gallon Frying Oil
 
Directions:
Drain and rinse oysters. Chop oysters into bite size pieces. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. At this point you're welcome to add a few pinches of your own spices. Garlic is always good as well as a very tiny pinch of saffron. Melt butter on low power in microwave. In another mixing bowl, beat eggs, then add butter and milk and mix well. Add dry ingredients and blend until smooth. 

Heat frying oil in a deep fryer or deep frying pan to around 350F. Dip oysters pieces into batter then drop into oil and fry for about 3 minutes until golden brown. If frying in pan, use generous amount of oil and turn oysters over after a minute or so. Place oyster fritters on paper towels to soak up extra oil. Serve hot with your favorite seafood sauce.
