minutes. Keep warm in top of double boiler over warm water. Heat oil in
deep fryer or large skillet to 375 F. Combine masa mix, flour and 2 1/2

mixture. Add oysters to oil in batches and fry until golden brown, about 1
minute. Transfer to paper towels using slotted spoon and let drain. Serve,
passing sauce separately. Brennan's Restaurant, Houston Bon Appetit 2/90 I
