Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes on FoodistaFried Green TomatoesIt’s a funny thing that so many people know what Fried green Tomatoes are yet have never tried one. I’ve changed my recipe up through the years by reducing the cornmeal, and making a lighter batter that crisps nicely. I found that the more Cornmeal tended to prevent the oil from draining as well. I like to drizzle my tomatoes with a little Balsamic Vinegar reduction as it adds just a little more tartness to the dish.

Fried Green Tomatoes

4 Medium Green Tomatoes, Sliced ¼” thick
2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
¼ Cup Yellow Cornmeal
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Cup Buttermilk
1 Egg
2 Cups beer- Lager type works best
¼ Teaspoon Kosher salt
¼ Teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
¼ Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/8 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1).Combine 1 Cup Flour, Old Bay Seasoning, Ground Black Pepper, and Garlic Powder, Mix Well and reserve for dredging purposes.

2).Mix all remaining ingredients less Buttermilk in a separate bowl and hand beat to incorporate evenly.
Add more beer for thinner batter.

3).Dip sliced Green Tomatoes in Buttermilk, then in Seasoned Flour before dipping in batter.
4). Deep fry at 350°F. until golden brown. Remove from oil, and drain on paper towel.
