Whisk first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Attach deep fry thermometer to side of a deep heavy pot. Pour oil into pot to a depth of 1 inch. Heat oil over medium-high heat until deep-fry thermometer registers 350-360 degrees.

Working in batches, dredge oysters in cornmeal mixture and fry, stirring occasionally with a slotted spoon until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.

Heat a griddle or a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook tortillas on griddle until softened and heated through, about 1 minute per side. Place 3 oysters in center of each tortilla; top with some Remoulade, lettuce and tomatoes.
