In large cast iron pot, heat oil to 350 degrees F.

Dip oysters in egg wash and then re-dredge in fish fry. Place oysters into oil individually and fry 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain oysters on paper towels.

Place spinach onto 4 salad plates. Slice Brie into 1-ounce portions. Place pats of Brie on the spinach. Arrange oysters evenly on salad. Drizzle dressing to taste and garnish with pimentos, bacon, and croutons.

Blend ingredients until texture is even. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
