  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons TABASCO® brand SWEET & Spicy Pepper Sauce, divided
  • 12 Blue Point oysters, shucked
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup peanut or vegetable oil
  • Kosher or other coarse salt


Combine the mayonnaise and 1 tablespoon of the TABASCO® SWEET & Spicy Sauce in a small bowl and mix well; refrigerate dip until ready to serve.

Place flour in a small bowl. Place bread crumbs in another small bowl. Beat egg with remaining 2 tablespoons TABASCO® SWEET & Spicy Sauce in a third small bowl and set aside. Dredge oysters in flour, shake off excess, and dip in egg mixture; shake off excess egg and completely coat oysters in bread crumbs. Place on a plate and refrigerate while oil heats.

Heat oil to 325°F in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add breaded oysters and fry until golden brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with coarse salt, and serve immediately with dip.

Makes 4 servings.
