Ever since I heard of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes in the 1990s, I have been curious as to how it tastes. It took me almost 20 years to find out. If I was limited to just one word to describe it, I would have to say: Scrumptious! I was recently reminded of it’s existence from a picture that was posted by MasterChef 3 contestant Josh Marks! So when I found some green tomatoes at the grocery among the delightfully red and ripe, I quickly grabbed. The next day I decided to make them. I knew that they are dipped and coated with a crispy coating and fried. Here I present to you the results and how I got there 🙂
Fried Green Tomatoes
Sprinkle the tomato slices with salt and pepper. Now lightly coat each slice with corn flour on both sides. Dip into egg and then coat with breadcrumbs. Shake of any excess breadcrumb. In the meantime heat some oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, on medium heat, fry the tomato slices until golden. Serve hot.
