Combine flour, baking powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. In another bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Stir in dry ingredients. Stir oysters into the batter. Pour about 1 inch of oil into a skillet. Heat until bubbly. Using a large spoon, drop about 3 oysters into oil. Fry until golden brown on each side. Remove and put on paper towels. Keep warm in a 200° oven. Serve with tartar or seafood sauce.
Fun Fact: Native Americans created great mounds of leftover oyster shells, feeding heavily upon them for centuries without destroying the oyster bars in the Chesapeake Bay. Early English settlers were also able to harvest oysters in great quantities without reducing the ability of the species to recover. The Constitution of Virginia states that the natural oyster beds, rocks, and shoals in the waters of the Commonwealth shall not be leased, rented, or sold but shall be held in trust for the benefit of the people of the Commonwealth. America’s only oyster museum is on Chincoteague Island, where the Oyster and Maritime Museum documents the island’s oystering and seafood history.
