- Spicy Cajun Mayonnaise: Stir together mayonnaise, lemon juice, olive oil, Cajun seasoning and mustard until blended. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place shrimps and oysters in large bowl. Season with salt and pepper; toss with cornmeal until well coated.
- Pour enough olive oil into straight-sided saucepan to come 1 inch up side; heat over medium heat until deep-fry thermometer registers 375°F. Shake off excess cornmeal from shrimps and oysters; shallow-fry, in batches, for 1 or 2 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels.
- Layer shrimps, oysters, spicy mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, and pickle slices (if using) in baguette sandwiches.
- Shallow-frying refers to a method of cooking food that’s only partly submerged in fat, so it must be flipped during the cooking time.
- Use moderate to high heat so that foods do not absorb oil and leave food greasy.
- Make sure foods are dry to prevent hot oil from splattering.
- Use a high-sided pan, and never fill a pan more than two-thirds full to prevent oil from bubbling over.
- Cook food in batches; do not overcrowd the pan so the oil temperature is maintained.
- Transfer cooked food to paper towel to drain excess oil.
