Oysters With Pepper Butter

Serves people


  1. Make the sauce first. Bring the liquid ingredients to a light boil in a small saucepan. Reduce by about a third.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat. Whisk in the butter, a tablespoon or so at a time, until you have a creamy-looking, orange sauce. Keep warm, but don't keep it on a continuous burner.
  3. Heat the oil to about 375 degrees.
  4. In a bowl, add the Creole seasoning and salt to the corn flour and mix with a fork. Toss the oysters in the mixture to coat, and shake off the excess flour.
  5. Fry the oysters until plump and light brown. Drain.
  6. Serve the oysters on a piece of buttered French bread, drizzled with the sauce, and a ramekin of the blue cheese dressing for dipping. Crumble bacon over the oysters to garnish.
