Crispy Oven-Fried Oysters Recipe

These flavorful breaded and baked oysters, served with a zippy jalapeno mayonnaise, were created by Marie Rizzio of Interlochen, Michigan. "I entered this recipe in a seafood contest and took first place in the hors d'oeuvres category," Marie says. "They make an interesting appetizer for entertaining." —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

"Poor (and expensive) option for the real thing! One star is being generous considering the mushy crust and chalky/raw flour taste after cooking for the suggested 15 minutes at 400."

"I used parmesan cheese because that's what

I had. I also used some soy sauce & lemon juice as an additional season after I baked it. Taste pretty good I will make this again."
