Rec: Wasabi Oyster Po’Boy Sandwiches

Wasabi Tartar Sauce:

1 cup wasabi mayonnaise
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
2 tablespoons minced shallot or onion
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley leaves
1 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Louisiana-style hot sauce

Sandwich Filling:

vegetable oil
2 loaves French bread
butter or margarine
cornmeal, seasoned with black pepper and cayenne
24 shucked oysters, drained
sliced tomatoes
shredded lettuce

Heat oil to 375 degrees F. (190 degrees C.) in a deep fryer
or heavy skillet. Meanwhile, prepare the wasabi tartar
sauce by stirring l the ingredients together in a small
bowl and set aside. Slice the loaves of bread into half
horizontally or vertically. Spread inside surfaces of
bread with butter. Place the bread on a baking sheet,
cut sides up. Heat the bread under broiler for 2 or 3
minutes, or until lightly browned; set aside. Place
cornmeal mixture in a plastic bag. Drop in six oysters
at a time and shake until well coated with cornmeal,
knocking off excess. Fry the oysters in batches of six
or less, turning occasionally, until they’re just cooked
through and are golden brown, about 1½ minutes.
Drain on paper towels. Spread each piece of bread with
2 tablespoons of wasabi tartar sauce. Arrange the oysters,
tomatoes, and lettuce on the bottom slices of bread. Top
with the remaining bread and gently press together. Enjoy.
