Wedges hold coating better than sliced rounds. Place the cooked wedges on parchment paper to soak up any excess oil. A great dip to have with this is mayonnaise with lime juice and basil mixed in.

Directions

  1. Combine cornmeal, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper in medium bowl & set aside.
  2. Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and lime juice & set aside. This will curdle slightly.
  3. Pour oil in frying pan to a depth of 1/2" & heat.
  4. Working in batches, dip tomatoes in buttermilk mixture, then in the cornmeal mixture.
  5. Fry tomatoes until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.
  6. Place first on paper towel to soak up excess oil, and serve on plate lined with parchment paper.
  7. Sprinkle with a bit of salt while hot.

I didn't have lime juice and used lemon juice. Oh, my, so good! I can hardly wait to eat another batch. I also used miracle whip with Alpine Touch seasoning ( a mix of salt,garlic & black pepper) Yummmm! Unfortunately I don't have any more green tomatoes.
