Ingredients

Vegetable oil, for frying

9 to 12 Louisiana oysters

6 ounces extra-small Louisiana wild-caught shrimp (size 61/70)

4 ounces store-bought fish batter mix 

16 fish fry cornmeal coating 

11 inches French bread, such as Leidenheimer Baking Company

2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise 

1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce

2 to 3 tablespoons ketchup 

3 pickle slices 

Hot sauce

Directions

  1. Prepare the fish batter mix according to package directions and coat the shrimp in the batter. Marinate the shrimp for up to 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat the oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees F. Alternatively, fill a cast-iron pot halfway with oil and heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 365 degrees F.
  3. Dredge the shrimp in the cornmeal coating. Shake off any excess cornmeal and fry until light golden brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes. Dredge the oysters in the cornmeal coating. Shake off any excess cornmeal and fry until light golden brown and crispy on the outside but soft on the inside, 4 to 5 minutes.
  4. Halve the bread lengthwise. Spread the mayonnaise on the top half of the bread, then add the lettuce, ketchup, pickle slices and some hot sauce. On the bottom half of the bread, place the oysters on one side and the shrimp on the other. Close the two bread halves and slice the sandwich in half to serve.
