1 pint Florida oysters, shucked
3 tablespoons milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs or corn meal
1/2 teaspoon salt

Drain liquid from oysters and remove any remaining shell pieces. Place oysters in a bowl, add milk and stir. Combine flour, bread crumbs or cracker meal, salt and pepper in a small bowl or pie plate. Coat oysters individually with flour mixture. In a heavy skillet, heat 1/4 inch of oil until hot, but not smoking. Fry oysters for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove from oil and drain on absorbent paper. Serve with sauce or on salad.
