Directions

  1. Place tomato slices in a bowl of ice water; soak for about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat about 1/2 inch of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. Combine cornmeal and flour in a bowl.
  4. Remove tomato slices from ice water, one at at time, and coat lightly in the cornmeal mixture; shake off any excess. Place in the hot oil.
  5. Cook tomato slices, working in batches, until edges are golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Sprinkle lightly with salt.

Wonderful! I think the ice water helped keep the tomatoes firm although the recipe didn't mention that. Awesome taste! I would have taken a picture but they were eaten too quickly.
