Fried Green Tomatoes with a Tomato-Corn Relish
Recipe: Fried Green Tomatoes with a Tomato-Caper Relish


  • 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


  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
