Fried Green Tomatoes

Updated: Sep 30, 2020


  • 3 medium, firm green tomatoes

  • Salt

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 Tbsp Cajun seasoning (optional)

  • 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk

  • 1 egg

  • 1/3 cup cornmeal

  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs

  • 1/4 cup peanut oil or extra virgin olive oil


1 Slice and salt green tomatoes: Cut unpeeled tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle slices with salt. Let tomato slices stand for 5 minutes.

2 Set out shallow bowls with coating ingredients: While the salted green tomato slices are resting, place in separate shallow bowls: the flour and Cajun seasoning (if using), buttermilk and egg, and breadcrumbs and cornmeal.

3 Dip green tomato slices in flour, egg, then breadcrumbs: Heat the peanut oil in a skillet on medium heat. Beat the egg and the buttermilk together. Dip the green tomato slices in the flour-seasoning mix, then the buttermilk-egg mixture, then the cornmeal-breadcrumb mix.

4 Fry the green tomatoes: In the skillet, fry half of the coated tomato slices at a time, for 3-5 minutes on each side or until brown.
