    Deep Fry

    Choose an oil with a high smoke point for deep-frying. Peanut oil is the iconic Southern choice. Vegetable oil can work, too. Add a bit of bacon drippings to pump up the flavor!

    Seafood Temperatures

    Keep all seafood below 40 degrees, in the coldest part of your refrigerator, for one or two days at most. Exceptions include live oysters, which can keep up to a week if stored cupped side down, wrapped in damp towels or newspapers. Live crawfish should be cooked on the day they’re purchased.
