Ingredients

  • INGREDIENTS

  • 3

    medium, firm green tomatoes

  • Salt

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1

    Tbsp Cajun seasoning (optional)

  • 1/2

    cup milk or buttermilk

  • 1

    egg

  • 1/3

    cup cornmeal

  • 1/2

    cup fine dry bread crumbs

  • 1/4

    cup peanut oil or other vegetable oil

Directions

METHOD 1 Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt. Let tomato slices stand for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place in separate shallow bowls: the flour and Cajun seasoning (if using), buttermilk and egg, and bread crumbs and cornmeal. 2 Heat the peanut oil in a skillet on medium heat. Beat the egg and the buttermilk together. Dip tomato slices in the flour-seasoning mix, then buttermilk-egg mixture, then the cornmeal-bread crumb mix. In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown. Set the cooked tomatoes on paper towels to drain. These are fantastic with a little Tabasco sauce or remoulade. Yield: Serves 4 as a side dish.
