Fried Green Tomatoes with Red Aioli Sauce

Ingredients

Aioli Sauce

  • ½ cup light mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1 large clove garlic, coarsely chopped

Fried Green Tomatoes

  • 2 pounds firm green, unripe tomatoes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅔ cup coarse, yellow cornmeal
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • ⅛ teaspoon coarse grain black pepper
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • ½ cup oil, for frying

Preparation

Aioli Sauce

Combine mayonnaise, red peppers and garlic in a mini chopper. Process until well combined and fairly smooth, scraping down sides of chopper halfway through. Transfer to a small bowl. Refrigerate until serving.

Tomatoes

  • Core tomatoes, then cut them into ¼-inch thick slices and dry on paper towels. Sprinkle with ⅛ tsp of salt.
  • Set up a dredging station with (3) shallow dishes:
    1. Combine flour and ⅛ tsp of the salt in the first shallow dish. 
    2. Lightly beat eggs in the second dish.
    3. In the third dish, combine cornmeal, Parmesan cheese, ¼ tsp salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper.
  • Coat tomato slices in seasoned flour, followed by egg mixture, then the cornmeal mixture.
  • Heat oven to 200 degrees. 
  • Heat ¼ cup oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and in a single layer, fry the coated tomato slices for 2 minutes on one side. Flip and fry the slices for another 2 minutes. 
  • Transfer to a baking sheet fitted with a wire rack and keep warm in oven. 
  • Repeat, coating all tomato slices with seasoned flour, egg and cornmeal mixture and adding oil as needed. 
  • Serve warm with cold aioli on the side, and enjoy!
