Pan-fried oysters with garlic mayo

This is a dish that was inspired by New Orleans and the Creole style of frying oysters. It is easy to make, requires few culinary skills but is really yummy and goes well with some cold beer or white wine.


12 shucked fresh oysters
½ cup of beer
1 tbsp mustard
1 egg
1 cup flour
Vegetable oil, for frying
½ cup mayonnaise
2 garlic cloves
Black and red pepper
Garlic powder

Mix the beer, mustard and egg, put in the oysters and marinate for one hour in the fridge. Mix in a bowl flour, spices and set aside. Grade two cloves of garlic and mix with ½ cup mayo and refrigerate. Heat a pan, put enough oil to cover the bottom. Dredge each oyster in the flour mix, shaking off any excess and fry for one-two minutes. Serve with garlic mayo.
