Directions:
On a plate, combine the bread crumbs, salt and pepper and mix well. Seet aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and mustard and stirl till blended thoroughly.

Dip the oysters into the butter mixture, dredge lightly in the seasoned bread crumbs, and place on a large plate. In a large, heavy skillet, heat about 1 inch of oil to 375 on a thermometer, then fry the oysters in the oil, without crowding them, for 2 minutes total, turning them once, and drain on paper towels.

Always wait between batches for your fat to heat back up to the right temperature. This keeps each batch crispy.
