When we are in southern California, Malibu Seafood on the Pacific Coast Highway, is a required stop. We like to camp at the RV park just up the hill from the restaurant. We always get take-out and bring it back to the motor home and enjoy it while watching the ocean and dolphins. We usually get a combo plate and the fried oysters are a favorite. Since a trip to Malibu is not on the calendar, like the chowder I craved, I would have to make my own oysters. I decided that fried oyster Po’ Boy sandwiches would go great with the homemade chowder. Oh my goodness, these were so good. Spicy breading, red jalapeños, and Sriracha mayonnaise put this Po’ Boy over the top.

- French Rolls
- Sliced jalapeños
- Sriracha mayonnaise (1/2 cup mayonnaise with Sriracha to taste)
- Mix the flour, cornmeal, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper in a bowl. Heat enough oil to a 2 inch depth in a heavy saucepan. Dredge the oysters in the coating mix and deep fry until golden brown and crispy.
- Toast the rolls under the broiler, add oysters, lettuce, peppers, and Sriracha mayonnaise.
