Oyster Tacos

Ingredients

1 pint Hilton’s Oysters
8 corn tortillas
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, loosely chopped
2 cups shredded cabbage and carrots (coleslaw mix)
1 egg
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika
1 cup bread crumbs
Canola oil for frying
1 lime, cut into slices

DRESSING:
1 cup mayo (substitute ½ cup with plain yogurt if desired)
4 Tbsp lime juice
1/4 tsp of cumin
1/2 tsp chipotle sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Directions

1. Combine the dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Add half of the mixture to the shredded cabbage and carrots. Cover and place in the refrigerator.
2. Combine flour, salt, and paprika in a shallow bowl. Lightly beat one egg in another small bowl. Have a third bowl with bread crumbs.
