This recipe for Perfect Fried Green Tomatoes truly lives up to its name. A fried green tomato is the epitome of Southern cuisine, and this recipe will help you achieve the ultimate Southern fried green tomatoes. This recipe has two secret tricks that make it the best. First, it is very important to salt the tomato slices to draw out their moisture so that they remain a bit crunchy when fried. The second secret is to skip the egg wash. Buttermilk and cornmeal are all you need to make a great, crispy coating.
