Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir together mustard, 1/2 cup olive oil, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, garlic, lemon juice, onion and 2 teaspoons of green onion. Season with paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper and parsley. Gently stir in the shrimp until evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg with a fork. Spread the cornmeal out on a plate. Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add more if needed to maintain an even coating of oil in the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Dip the tomato slices in the buttermilk and egg, then dip into the cornmeal to coat thoroughly. Fry slices in the hot oil until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and continue breading and frying the remaining tomato slices.
  4. To serve, arrange salad greens on six plates. Top each one with two slices of fried green tomato, then spoon some of the shrimp remoulade over the tomatoes and sprinkle with the remaining green onion to garnish.

This was not only my first time making fried green tomatoes, but also my first time eating them, so my first impression of the fried tomatoes themselves was that they needed some seasoning in the cornmeal. That thought flew out the window when I tasted them with the (mayonnaise-free, THANK YOU!) remoulade! Wow! What a great combination of flavors - this sauce is totally addicting, and perfectly suited for fried green tomatoes. I cannot wait to have the opportunity to serve this to guests. It looks and tastes delicious, and was actually quite easy to prepare. Thanks for sharing!

Anyone can fry great green tomatos, but the Remoulade sauce takes this dish to a whole new level. This is really good, and do yourself a favor, follow the recipe, don't deviate or mess around. When something works this good, don't fix it!

I live in New Orleans and took this recipe to Grand Isle with me this weekend. I bought shrimp (right off the shrimp boat) and took fresh green tomatoes from my Mom's garden. I made this to go with the boiled crabs we caught early in the morning. Everyone raved over it! And believe me, those Cajuns know good food!
