Fried Green Tomatoes with Spicy Sauce- Low Carb

20160913_135618

I love Fried Green Tomatoes, not just because I live in the South, but they are just simply Good. Some of you may consider this a Summer Dish, it is really, But its also a wonderful appetizer for a warm bowl of Vegi Soup.

There are tons of recipes online for these wonderful tasty little green things, here is my take on the Low Carb version of Fried Green Tomatoes.

You will want to use a Cast Iron Pan or a Heavy Skillet.

 

Here’s What You Will Need.

Ingredient’s:

2 Medium to Large green tomatoes

1/2 Cup Almond Flour or Almond Meal

2 Eggs

2 Tablespoon Parmesan Cheese  

1/2 Tablespoon Black Pepper

1/2 Tablespoon Salt

1/2 Tablespoon Cayenne Pepper

I/3 cup to 1/2 cup Olive Oil or Peanut Oil (all pan bottoms are different adjust oil to cover just the bottom).

NOTE: If you want to fry more Tomatoes for a larger crowd adjust recipe as needed.

Low Carb Creole Dipping Sauce:

1 large Egg Yolk

2 tsps Fresh Lemon Juice (or in the little cute little lemon)

1 tsp Dijon Mustard

1/2 tsp Salt

1/8 tsp Black Pepper

1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Sriracha (more if you like heat less if you want milder)

Ok lets Cook!!

We are going to make our Sauce first, so we can have it handy when our Tomatoes are Hot and Freshly Cooked.

First lets separate our yolk from those whites, you can use any method that works for you, if you don’t know how here’s a link:     https://youtu.be/yAGX-54iR30  or if you like to do it the COOL way:   https://youtu.be/_AirVOuTN_M

Next:

Combine egg, lemon juice, mustard, Sriracha, salt and pepper in Small mixing bowl and combine with whisk. Pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream and Whisk as you go constantly. Mixture should start to become thick .

DONE! You can use this Sauce for a lot of dishes including Shrimp and Hamburgers. I don’t like Mayo. But this is Good!  

OK, lets get our Tomatoes ready, Wash and dry your Green Tomatoes. Now slice as thin or thick as you like, the Norm is 1/2 inch, I like mine a tad smaller. Lay your Slices on Paper Towel and Salt and Pepper both sides. let them fellows sit there for about 5 to 10 min. to drain most of the moister out.

Next get your Eggs whipped up in one bowl and your Almond Meal/Flour in the other. Add all the seasoning to the Flour mixture and mix with a fork.

Get your Frying pan ready add your oil and heat Med. high . While that is heating up lets get started with our Tomatoes.

Dip Tomatoes  in flour first, then Egg wash, then back in flour. Add to hot pan, Don’t crowd your pan, take your time and only do a few at a time 3 – 5 min that’s all, watch don’t let them burn!
