Shuck a dozen oysters, reap a dozen oyster sliders. It's simple food math.

Nothing inspires as much hope in the future of humanity as a platter piled high with simple, perfect sliders. Such is the case with this oyster slider recipe from Marc Murphy of surfer-themed gastropub Ditch Plains fame. Fear not the oyster, for it is easily shucked (check out our handy gif), dredging is a lot easier and less messy than breading and slider construction might as well be arts and crafts. If that doesn't convince you, the photo should.

Servings: 3


For the sliders
6 mini slider buns (we like Martin's potato rolls)
6 whole oysters, shucked
flour, for dredging oysters
oil, for frying
dill pickle slices
iceberg lettuce leaves, torn to size
For the Old Bay mayonnaise
1 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning

For the sliders: 

  1. In a large, heavy-bottomed pot or cast-iron pan, add frying oil. Heat oil to 350 degrees, testing with a frying thermometer.  
  2. Coat oysters evenly in flour, then add the oysters to the oil and fry until golden brown and crispy (about 1 minute).
  3. Remove from oil and season with salt and pepper.

For the Old Bay mayonnaise: 

  1. Mix mayo and old bay together thoroughly.

Slider assembly:

  1. Bottom bun
  2. Spread of old bay mayonnaise
  3. 1 dill pickle slice
  4. 1 crispy oyster
  5. Iceberg leaf atop oyster
  6. Top bun
