Boo!

Happy Halloweeny! We are having an extra wet & windy day. Not sure how many trick or treaters we will get. We may have a lot of candy left...oh darn....




To pass the time on this dreary day I decided to enjoy the remains of summer. Thursday was the last day of our downtown Farmer's Market. I wasn't able to go down there due to our department being in the middle of a physical move, but one of the girls from our department ran down there to pick up some green tomatoes. Sounded so good so that I asked her to pick me up a few. Today I turned them into fried goodness....



Fried Green Tomatoes

3 medium firm green tomatoes
salt
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tsp Tony Chachere's Seasoning or other cajun seasoning
1/2 cup buttermilk (or milk with 1 T vinegar)
1 egg
1/2 cup addl cornmeal
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
enough vegetable oil to fill your pan 1 inch

Cut tomatoes into 1/2 inch slices. Sprinkle both sides with salt and let sit for about 5 minutes. In three separate shallow bowls or pans combine 1) flour, cornmeal & seasoning 2) milk &  beaten egg 3) Addl cornmeal and breadcrumbs. Heat oil in pan on medium heat. Dip tomato slices in the flour -cornmeal-seasoning mix, then buttermilk-egg mixture, then the cornmeal-bread crumb mix. In the pan, fry the coated tomato slices for 3-5 minutes on each side until brown. Don't crowd the pan. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with salt. Serve with remoulade sauce.  

Remoulade Sauce

Mix all together. Can be made ahead.
