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. 

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.
