Fried oyster sandwich! I ate without the bread and was as delicious as it looks.

They stick a plastic knife into the top of the bun and a fork on the side for those that wish to use, which I did.

Homemade horseradish mayo for the topping with garden red juicy tomatoes.

SAWS is the name of the tiny, and I mean tiny restaurant.

One of their specialties is Sweet tea fried chicken sandwich. I can't imagine! But the lines outside the door is a sign of how good the place is.

It's a soul food restaurant.

Taylor Hicks is opening, think this weekend, a restaurant close by. Will see if he's good competition for SAWS.

Oh boy, does that look good. I'd do the same thing--take it off the bun. I'd love to try the tea chicken. Sounds wonderful!

Here's recipe for sweet tea fried chicken. Did a search and all the recipes are basically the same.

Sweet tea fried chicken

8 chicken leg quarters
1 quart brewed tea, double strength
1 lemon, zested, quartered
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup kosher salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups masa harina (fine cornmeal)
2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
1 tablespoon chili powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 cups buttermilk
1 quart vegetable oil


How to make it

1

Mix brine ingredients. Simmer 5 minutes, until sugar and salt dissolve. Add 1 quart ice water. Submerge chicken for 48 hours, refrigerated. Drain.

2

Mix flour, masa harina, Old Bay, chili powder, salt and pepper in large bowl. Soak chicken in buttermilk in medium bowl, 2 minutes. Remove, draining off excess liquid. Coat chicken in masa harina mixture. Let sit 30 minutes before frying.

3

Heat oil to 325�F. Fry chicken, fully covered in oil, 15 minutes (big pieces may need more time; small pieces, less). Cool; refrigerate overnight.

Double checked and YES cool, refrigerate overnight.

Food Network says this:

. Drain on a rack. Cool to room temperature, and then place in refrigerator for at least 4 and no more than 24 hours. Serve cool from a picnic basket or cold, straight from the refrigerator

That looks great, Glenda.

I have found a new place in Trussville for us to have lunch at. It's called The Southern Diner. We think it's better than Joel's. Had dinner there tonight. DH had fried fish, fried okra and lima beans. I had Greek baked chicken, fried okra and mash red potatoes (skin on). Their fried okra is really crispy.

They have a sister restaurant - Homewood Diner

That is indeed a very big sandwich. Don't know how anyone could bite into it "traditional" sandwich style.


 o
RE: This is a pictbbbure of a very big sandwich.

That's why they stick a knife into the top bun and give you a fork on the side of the dish, lol

Those oysters look delicious! I can't wait to have some.

Masa harina in fried chicken....that sounds interesting. I may have to give that a try.

marilyn, the oysters were perfect. I'm a oyster lover every which way.

Their chef was former chef of well known Ocean's Restaurant here.

My son's office is right across the street and he as well as everyone else loves SAWS.

Glenda, we stopped on the way to the beach and I had a nice plate of fried oysters. They were mighty good! Once again, that sandwich looks great but I'd do the same as you and use the fork!
