Deep Fryer Fried Green Tomatoes
Prep: 15 min, Cook: 10 min.
For 4 Servings:
* 1/4 cup all purpose flour
* 1 tsp. paprika
* 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
* 2 Tbs. fresh oregano, finely chopped, or 2 tsp. dried
* 1 egg, well beaten
* 4 green tomatoes, each about the same size
* canola oil
Combine flour and salt and pepper to taste on a sheet of wax paper. Combine cornmeal and oregano on another sheet of wax paper. Rinse and dry tomatoes and cut a thin slice off the top and bottom of each and discard. Then slice each tomato into 3 thick slices. Dredge tomatoes in seasoned flour, dip in egg and then coat thoroughly with cornmeal. Place on a wire rack set over a piece of aluminum foil to catch any drippings. Heat 1 inch oil in an electric deep fryer to 375°F. Fry 3 tomato slices at a time about 3 minutes per side, until lightly golden. Drain on paper towels and repeat with remaining tomatoes.
