- Set a deep fat fryer to 350 degrees. Marinate shucked oysters in buttermilk for up to an hour.
- Mix flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and peppers for breading. Double bread (take oysters from buttermilk to flour mixture and back again) and gently lower into fryer. Note: Do not bread ahead of time as flour and oysters will get gummy and stick together.
