"Un"fried Green Tomatoes

We all love fried food no matter in deep down we know that its not good for us. But still we just go for it. Here is the recipe we all love but the catch is it's baked. Yes you can have all the goodness of green tomatoes but without guilty feeling. If you still want to make it you can fry it. This go very well with Remoulade Sauce.


1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 dash sugar
3 green tomatoes, sliced into 16 slices (1/2-inch)
1/3 cup nonfat milk
cooking spray


1.Preheat oven to 400°.
2 .To prepare the green tomatoes, combine flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through sugar) in a shallow dish. Dip tomato slices in milk; dredge in flour mixture. Lightly coat both sides of tomato slices with cooking spray.
3. Place a baking sheet in oven; heat at 400° for 5 minutes. Remove from oven; immediately coat with cooking spray. Place tomato slices on preheated baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes.

Remoulade Sauce


  • 1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup mustard (Creole mustard if possible)
  • 1 Tbsp sweet paprika
  • 1-2 teaspoons Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 1 teaspoon pickle juice (dill or sweet, your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon hot sauce (preferably Tabasco)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced and smashed

Yield: Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
