another fresh seafood idea

The keys to good frying are proper temperature and fast cooking. The ideal temperature for frying fish is 375 F. With cooler oil, the food absorbs too much fat and the fish becomes soggy.

In small bowl, combine flour, beer, oil, salt and pepper. Fold in egg whites. Roll oysters in batter. Fry in deep fat at 375 F until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
