Fried Oyster Sandwich with Cajun Cream Cheese

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.

Ingredients

For the Cajun cream cheese

  • 8 Ounces cream cheese
  • 1 Cup sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt, to taste

For the sandwich

  • 3 shucked oysters
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/4 Cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 Cup canola oil
  • 2 slices white toast
  • 2 leaves lettuce
  • 1/4 cucumber, sliced thinly
  • 2 slices tomato
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

For the Cajun cream cheese

Place all of the ingredients in a bowl of a food processor, season with salt to taste, and purée until smooth. Set aside and refrigerate until ready to use. 

For the sandwich

Batter each oyster in a little bit of flour, then egg wash, and then the panko breadcrumbs. Heat the canola oil in a sauté pan to 375 degrees. Fry the oysters until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Remove from the oil and immediately season with salt and set on a paper towel to drain. 

Spread the Cajun cream cheese on each slice of white toast and assemble the sandwich with fried oysters, lettuce, cucumber, and tomato.
