Pan Fried Oysters is my recipe of the day with  the blogging  group  Fish  Friday Foodies. We post  together on the  third   Friday of the month  on various  recipe topics involving seafood.

Today we are sharing favorite recipes for Seasonal Fish and  Seafood.  Since oyster season  is in full swing,   I thought I would share  another recipe for them.

This particular recipe uses a panko  coating  to  ensure a  very crispy exterior.

Oysters are a Southern  low country classic, and whether served up simply fried, or  tucked away inside of a French bread Po’ Boy,  they are sure to please.

  1. I love oysters, unfortunately I am the only one in the house who does so unless I’m entertaining I only get them when we go out.
