"Virginia is known for its fresh Chesapeake Bay oysters, and this crispy Deep Fried Oysters recipe is the best way to prepare them! A simple cornmeal coating gives the shellfish a beautiful golden brown exterior and just the right amount of crunch. Serve them with a creamy dipping sauce, stuff them into a po' boy sandwich, or just garnish with lemon wedges. They're the ultimate Southern treat! Just like our blue crabs, our Brunswick Stew, and our country ham, Virginians take great pride in our fresh oysters. In fact, Virginia is considered the Oyster Capital of the East Coast, with over 40 million oysters sold each year! We live near the mountains in Central Virginia (not on the coastline); however, those fresh, briny oysters from the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries make a regular appearance in our neck of the woods at oyster roasts, in country markets, and on holiday tables. Southern fried oysters that are soaked in buttermilk and dredged in seasoned cornmeal are a classic way to showcase this local delicacy. "
