My First Fried Green Tomatoes

It may come as a surprise to some (but not to most who really know me) that I’ve never had fried green tomatoes before. I thought it was high time to try them. This recipe comes from the Tropical Traditions Coconut Recipe Blog.

Straight from our own tomato plants!

You don’t need much for this simple finger food.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika (we meant to add cayenne too but forgot; I think it would be a good addition)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 large (or 2 small) green tomatoes cut into slices

Dredge through egg wash, coat with flour and spice mix, and fry. Easy. Peasy.

Damn, that was a good dinner. Seafood balls, coleslaw (cabbage!) with our own homemade dressing, and fried green tomatoes. Mmm…

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.
