Fried Green Tomatoes
A recipe from the Sneaky Kitchen
2 unripe tomatoes, green, or pink but very firm
3/4 cup fine yellow corn meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
olive oil
cooking spray

Remove the stem & blossom ends of the tomatoes. Slice them about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Combine corn meal, salt, sugar & pepper in a shallow bowl. Dip each tomato slice into corn meal, coating thoroughly. Shake off excess & lay out in a single layer on a plate or dry cutting board.

Lightly oil a heavy, non-stick skillet with olive oil. Place over med-high heat. While heating, spray tomatoes on one side with cooking spray. When hot, add single layer of tomatoes, sprayed side down. Immediately spray top side with more cooking spray. Fry until lightly browned. Turn with a spatula & lightly brown the other side.  Serve right away while hot.
