#SundaySupper: Fat Sunday

Sunday Supper Movement


Happy Sunday and #SundaySupper has made me think of Fat Tuesday and everything wonderful from New Orleans this time of year.  To be honest, without Sunday Supper’s prompt I wouldn’t have even thought of it.  That’s just one of the reasons why I love this group.

Special thanks for Leslie for being such a great hostess.

I really wanted oysters and of course this time of year makes me think of deep fried. However I didn’t want to spent $40.00 on fresh oysters which would then be shucked and breaded.  My solution?  I got tins of smoked oysters (a shocking $2.75 for roughly 18 in each tin) and gave them a really quick rinse to get the oil off.

oysters2 Then set up your breading station; eggs whisked with hot sauce, cornmeal and flour spiked with crushed chili and finally the oysters lightly tossed with flour.  The oysters get dribbled into hot oil and let rise to the top. oysters3 Those would really be yummy enough but how about a spicy remoulade?  

What’s a remoulade?  A fancy mayonnaise that is usually spiked with lots of hot sauce and other fabulous flavours.  I made mine even more fun with finely diced celery, capers and two bit fat avocados.  

Why so much?  Well, I know my family and I knew that this was going to be a hit and I also knew that we had a big bag of tortilla chips that would magically appear as soon as anything resembling quacamole appeared.


Are you sold?  You can even make these a bit ahead of time and reheat them.

    I’ve never bought oysters in a tin, but the end results looks so delicious! I love fried oysters and will definitely be tryign these!

  2. says

    Okay that was a very clever idea. I am afraid we avoid oysters because not only are they expensive but I really don’t like shucking them. So this would be a perfect way for me to try them more.

  3. says

    What a fantastic idea to use canned smoked oysters. Perfect!!! I love your recipe for both the fried oysters and the remoulade.

  4. says

    So I’ve never had oysters before and honestly, just the thought kind of creeps me out. BUT your fried oysters made my mouth water. I would love to try this fried version and then make my way to the others, lol.

    I am usually not a fan of oysters but this recipe has me convinced I must try them again! Pinning and trying. They look delicious and the remoulade uh double yum!

  6. says

    Mmmm, I bet that remoulade is beyond delicious with the avocado in it! Your oysters look outstanding too. I’ve always been a little squeamish about oysters, but you’re inspiring me to put on my big-girl panties and try them again. Deep fried, of course. :)

    Whoa mama does this dish ever look good! You got a perfect crispy crust on the oysters and that remoulade looks incredible! I kinda wanna drink that remoulade on its own – is that weird? It’s the avocado – I love the stuff!

    My dad was from the east coast so I grew up with tons of seafood around the house. I’m allergic but every single time I see oysters I think of my dad. Love the addition of hot sauce.
