Lovely recipe, I served the tomatoes for brunch with Low Fat Chinese Omelet, nice combination. I would advise others trying this recipe follow the instructions carefully. Have the oil HOT and only cook for 2 minutes each side. They come out golden and oh so good. This was a nice change I usually stir fry the tomatoes with onions, Thanks Charlotte 3 for a keeper.
