Fried Oysters, Chipotle Mayonnaise, Salsa Fresca

MALPEQUE OYSTER – (Crassostrea virginica)

Grown on the beds of Malpeque Bay, Prince Edward Island, far in northeastern corner of North America. The Malpeque Oyster was judged the world’s tastiest oyster at the Paris Exhibition in 1900. It continues to be recognized as one of the world’s finest, known for a clean, clear, pure taste.

This Salsa Picante Fresca is from my favorite neighborhood market, El Supermercado. They make great fresh salsas.
Chipotle Mayonnaise is mayonnaise mixed with chipotle (smoked jalapeño) chile adobo sauce.
