Comment on Oysters Bingo (Fried Oysters) Recipe by Cathy Peabody.
This is indeed the original recipe that I was given by the chef at Ship’s Cabin Restaurant more than 26 years ago, and you’re right, do not bread the oysters, but lightly dust them in flour.
This has been a Christmas dinner appetizer for my family for years, and we love it! My husband actually found a pearl in one of his oysters one year and luckily did not break a tooth.
We are, in fact, having Oysters Bingo as our appetizer tonight for our Valentine’s Dinner — what a treat!
