Directions

Insert an oyster knife into the opening and slowly twist and pop it. This should open the oyster, run your knife to remove the top shell. Using the knife, slip it under the oyster meat to loosen the lower adductors allowing you to remove the meat and discard the oyster’s liquor.

Place the buttermilk in a small bowl along with the shucked oysters. Refrigerate, covered, for 2 to 3 hours to tenderize the oysters.

Place the flour into a small bowl, breadcrumbs into another small bowl. Whisk and combine the eggs and Cajun seasoning in another bowl. Dredge each of the oysters, one at a time, in the flour, then the egg wash, and then roll them in breadcrumbs.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil to 350°F (180°C). Fry the oysters, in small batches, for approx. 1-2 minutes or until golden brown. Season, set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, add the salad, canola, cheese and mix. In a small bowl add the mayo, sriracha, lemon juice, salt and pepper, mix well. Build the salad & ENJOY!
