PreparationSteaming Oysters: Fill a pot with about about 1/4 inch of water. Bring to a boil and add oysters. Cover with a tight fitting lid and cook until they open (3 to 10 minutes).
Grilling Oysters: Place oysters directly on medium hot grill and close lid. Cook until oysters open, usually 3-10 minutes depending on size.
Baking Oysters: Preheat oven to 400°F and place on a baking sheet. Lay aluminum foil on the sheet and place oysters on the foil. Fold foil, to make a tent so that the steam collects. Cook until the shells are open.

1/4 tsp pepper
6 cups vegetable oil
1 lg egg
1/4 c half and Half or whole milk
2 tsp of salt or Old Bay seasoning

In a plastic or paper bag, combine cornmeal, remaining salt and pepper and shake well. In batches, dip oysters in egg mixture, then drip, and add to the cornmeal mix and shake.
Delicately place each coated oyster in oil while removing excess breading and fry. Flip oysters in oil until they become golden brown (usually 1-2 mins.) Using a slotted spoon, remove from fryer and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat process for the next batch until done.
