Eastern Shore Oyster Fritters


1 pint shucked Maryland standard oysters

½ cup evaporated milk

1 cup dry pancake mix

2 tablespoons cornmeal

1 teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

¾ cup oil


Drain oysters, reserving liquor. In a bowl, mix milk, pancake mix, cornmeal, salt and pepper. Gently fold in oysters. (Batter will be thick). Heat oil in a 10-inch fry pan. Drop batter into hot oil by tablespoonful, making sure to include 2 oysters in each portion. Cook until brown on 1 side, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn carefully and brown the other side.

Yield: 18 fritters

NOTE: If batter becomes too thick, thin with oyster liquor.
