  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 shallots, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 4 cups peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 pint (approximately 50) fresh oysters, shucked Bluffton or other fresh oysters
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose coating, ("all-purpose breading mix")


Mix all the ingredients for the tartar sauce in a bowl; set aside.


Heat 4 cups of oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat or preheat deep fryer at 350°. Cook's Note: Throw in a drop of water: when it sizzles, the oil is ready.


Pick through the oysters to remove any shells. Pour the coating mixture into a shallow bowl. Dredge the oyster in the coating. Fry oysters until they are golden brown; about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.


On each spoon, place a dollop of tartar sauce and top with an oyster. Serve.
