Fried Green Tomatoes Serves 8

8 medium green tomatoes, trimmed

3 ½ tsp coarse sea salt

1 tsp fresh ground pepper

5 large eggs, beaten

1 cup buttermilk

3 cups flour

4 cups panko

1 cup Italian bread crumbs

Vegetable oil

Slice the tomatoes ¼” thick and season with salt and pepper.

In a shallow bowl or pie plate, whisk the eggs and the buttermilk together.

In a second shallow dish, combine the flour, ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper.

In a third shallow dish, combine the panko, the Italian bread crumbs, 1 tsp of the coarse salt and ½ tsp of pepper.

Heat a cup of oil in a large skillet and place over medium high heat.

Dredge the tomatoes through the flour, coat with the egg mixture and coat with the panko mixture.

Place the tomatoes, a few at a time in the oil and fry for about 2-3 minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel.

After frying about half the tomatoes, discard the oil and replace with a fresh cup.

Serve the tomatoes hot with your favorite dipping sauce or aioli.
