Pick ‘em early from your garden, raid your neighbor’s garden or check out the farmer’s market—any way you can get your hands on some green tomatoes for a terrific side dish!
1. Clean and slice tomatoes 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Sprinkle each slice with salt and pepper. Set on paper towel for 5 minutes.
2. While tomatoes are resting, beat together the buttermilk and egg in a flat bowl or pie plate; set aside. Whisk together the cornmeal mix and Cajun seasoning. Heat 1/2″ of oil and butter in a skillet over medium high heat.
3. Dip the tomato slices in the buttermilk-egg mixture, then into the cornmeal mixture. Dredge each side, shaking off the excess. Place in hot oil. Cook until both sides are lightly browned, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
4. Serve immediately. Careful—insides will be hot!
1. Sprinkle a tiny amount of cornmeal into hot grease to test for readiness. If the cornmeal sizzles, the oil is ready. If there is no reaction then the oil isn’t quite hot enough. Oil needs to be hot in order to fry the tomatoes without leaving them greasy.
2. Can serve with dipping sauce, aioli sauce, remoulade sauce or your favorite sauce.
My immersion blender came with a small bowl and attachment that allows it to work like a food processor. I love it. It is great for small quantities such as this margarine rub for corn. I had a smidgeon of the mixture left over and used it on a grilled cheese sandwich. Yum!
When I made this dish I originally had a run-of-the-mill stewed lentil thing in mind. Then I just let my imagination run wild, grabbing whatever sounded good from my fridge and pantry. With ingredients like pomegranate molasses, cumin, smoked paprika, and fresh mint, it ended up tasting like a Middle Eastern version of baked beans. Savory, smoky, and complex-flavored with an underlying hint of sweetness, the sauce is killer.
