America’s Culinary Stories-Fried Green Tomatoes

Advertisement


 Ingredients


2 to 3 medium-sized green tomatoes

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon Cajun spice

3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 egg, beaten 

⏩ 

Directions


Place the flour mixed with Cajun seasoning in one shallow dish.


Add the egg to a second dish. Add a tablespoon of water and mix well.


Place the panko crumbs, cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a third shallow dish.


Cut the tomatoes into ½ inch thick slices and pat dry with paper towels.




Sprinkle the tomato slices evenly with salt and pepper.


Dredge the tomato slices in the flour, then the egg, and then in the panko mixture to coat evenly.


Place the breaded tomatoes on the prepared baking sheet.


To Deep Fry


Fry Tomatoes: heat the oil to 360º F and using a spatula or flat slotted spoon slide the coated tomato into the oil. Fry for 3 minutes on each side.


To Shallow Fry


Place a deep skillet with cooking oil about ½ inch deep; on medium-high heat. Heat the oil and place green tomato slices in hot oil and brown lightly on each side, careful not to over-brown the green tomatoes. I do mine in small batches.

Place on a paper towel-lined plate when done and serve immediately.


To Oven Bake


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Oil a cookie sheet.

Bake for 20 minutes, turning the tomatoes over with a wide spatula after 10 minutes.

Serve with your favorite sauce.
