Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe

Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes are a Southern speciality so here's a recipe for you to also try them at home:

Ingredients

  • 3 medium-sized, firm green tomatoes

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 cup flour

  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/3 cup fine white cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup peanut, canola or olive oil for frying

Method

1. Slice and salt green tomatoes. Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt. Leave the tomato slices to stand for 5 minutes.

2. Set out small bowls with the following coating ingredients: 1) the flour and Cajun seasoning (if using), 2) the buttermilk/milk and egg and whisk, and 3) breadcrumbs and cornmeal.

3. Bread the tomato slices by heating the oil in a skillet on medium heat. Dip the green tomato slices in the flour-seasoning, then the buttermilk/egg mixture, then the cornmeal-breadcrumb mix.

4. Fry the breaded tomatoes in the skillet by frying half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until brown. Set the cooked tomatoes on paper towels to drain. These fried green tomatoes are fantastic with a little hot sauce.
