  • 4 large, firm green tomatoes, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal, preferably stone ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon bittersweet pimenton (smoked Spanish paprika;, optional
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil, for frying



Step 1

Season tomatoes with salt and pepper. Mix together cornmeal and pimenton in a bowl. Lightly beat eggs in another bowl.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Dip tomatoes in egg, and dredge in cornmeal mixture. Working in batches, fry tomatoes in a single layer until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Let drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
