Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried Green Tomatoes was confusing to me for many years. Why cook with unripe tomatoes when ripe ones have such amazing flavour?

Well, the tartness of these green tomatoes fried with a crispy cornmeal crust is the perfect counterpart to the rich, spicy, creamy, tangy Remoulade Sauce. I’d venture to say they’re like a milder version of Fried Pickles, another Southern recipe people love.

This site is full of all different kinds of recipes, some of which are southern favourites. Among them, Martha White Southern Cornbread which is a white cornbread rather than the super sweet yellow cornbread most people make, BBQ Cajun Shrimp which is buttery, lemony and every kinds of delicious and creamy bacon pea salad, my favourite side salad of the summer which is full of cheddar cheese and bacon.

Is a this tomato made with an unripe tomato?

Yes, for classic fried green tomatoes you are using unripe tomatoes that would turn red as they ripen. Don’t use fully ripe green tomatoes such as heirloom tomatoes as they won’t have the firm structure and correct flavour for the recipe.

What to serve with Fried Green Tomatoes?

The most classic thing to serve with Southern Fried Green Tomatoes is a classic remoulade sauce. You can make a remoulade sauce in just a couple of minutes, but flavours are best if the sauce has had a chance to sit and let the flavours develop.

This dish of fried green tomatoes may look fancy, but the process for making them is the same as making chicken parmesan. And that delicious sauce under the tomatoes? Well, that sauce is made in a food processor in just seconds.
