FRIED OYSTERS WITH CITRUS JUICE AND MASHED VEGETABLES
1 to 2 cups dry pancake mix
1 pt shucked oysters, drained
vegetable oil for frying
3 Tbsps lime juice, 2 Tbsps lemon juice, 1 Tbsp orange juice mixed together
sea salt

serves 4 (8 oysters each)

Put pancake mix into large shallow bowl. Add oysters, a few at a time, and toss lightly until well coated. Shake off excess breading and fry in pan with 1-2 inches of hot oil, turning oysters until browned. Repeat until all oysters are cooked.
Drain on paper towel, salt lightly, and dip into individual small bowls of juice mixture as desired.

MASHED VEGETABLES

Any two or three of the following:

sweet cassava tubers (also called manioc, or yuca)
red or white potatoes
sweet potatoes
taro (also called cocoyam)
yams
plantains
sea salt

Wash, peel, and cut the vegetables into bite-size pieces.
Heat water and salt (to taste) to boiling in a saucepan. Add all ingredients. Cook until tender.
Drain water from pan, and mash (like mashed potatoes).
