Fried Oyster Sandwich with Cajun Cream Cheese
Staff Writer

Douglas Sisk

Crispiness, saltiness, and seafood are the defining ingredients for a summer sandwich that’s warm-weather appropriate, which is why we love fried oyster sandwiches. This recipe from chef Douglas Sisk of Miami Beach’s The Social Club gives a nod to the sandwich’s New Orleans upbringing with a Cajun cream cheese spread.

Oyster Shopping Tip

Seafood shopping is quite easy in the general sense. Rule of thumb: if it smells fishy, don't buy. Fresh seafood should smell mild and more like the ocean and sea water rather than fish.
