Jada Fried Green Tomatoes

Fried green tomatoes are terrific as a snack on their own. They are also a wonderful accompaniment to macaroni and cheese, or with shrimp cocktail and a green salad for a light dinner. Or, for a different spin on a Caprese salad, layer them with fresh mozzarella, basil and ripe tomatoes with a drizzle of good olive oil, a splash of sherry vinegar and a sprinkle of coarse sea salt. The Jada Turmeric Chicken Salt perfectly seasons the flour that the green tomatoes are dredged in, resulting in a flavorful, golden crust. For a zesty sauce to serve with the fried green tomatoes, try a mixing some sour cream with a bit of the Jada Lime Chicken Salt and Jada Red Pepper Chicken Salt.

Serves 3 to 4 as a side dish or first course

3 Tablespoons vegetable oil or light olive oil
2 Tablespoons butter
1 cup white rice flour or corn flour or corn meal
1 Tablespoon Jada Turmeric Chicken Salt
2 large green tomatoes, sliced 3/8 inches thick

Heat the oil and butter together over medium heat in a large skillet. Don't let it get too hot.

Mix the flour of choice and Jada Turmeric Chicken Salt together on a plate. Dip the sliced green tomatoes in buttermilk and dredge lightly in seasoned flour mixture.

Pan fry or saute tomatoes in the hot oil and butter, turning once until golden brown on each side. Serve a couple of slices with dipping sauce (recipe below), or as a side with macaroni and cheese, shrimp cocktail or as part of a Caprese salad.
