Fried Green Tomatoes with a Tomato-Corn Relish

Fried Green Tomatoes with a Tomato-Corn Relish

I’ve leftover relish from yesterday’s Grilled White Fish with Tomato-Caper recipe. I spy fat green tomatoes hanging heavy on the vine and am confident the leftover relish would be superb with the classic Southern specialty, Fried Green Tomatoes.

I only have a several tablespoons of the relish left, so I blanched an ear of corn to bolster the batch. Magnificent!

Recipe: Fried Green Tomatoes with a Tomato-Caper Relish

Ingredients

  • 4 green tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices (discard ends)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil (or bacon drippings), plus more if needed
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup corn meal
  • 1/3 cup white flour

Instructions

  1. Liberally season tomato slices with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  2. In a large cast iron or non-stick skillet, heat oil to medium-hot heat. Combine corn meal and flour. Dip the tomato slices in egg then dredge in the corn meal mixture.
  3. Fry the tomato slices in oil until golden brown, approximately 4-5 minutes on each side. Add more oil to pan if needed. If the oil becomes too hot, it will smoke and the tomatoes may burn.
  4. Drain the tomatoes on paper towels, top with Tomato-Caper Relish and serve.

Time: 35 minutes

Number of servings (yield): Depends on the size of the tomato; about 4 servings
