Fried Green Tomatoes with Pepper Jelly - CAPATRITI

Fried Green Tomatoes with Pepper Jelly


  • 4 medium-size green tomatoes, sliced ½-inch think
  • 1 cup self-rising white cornmeal mix
  • ½ cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ tbsp. Capatriti® EVOO
  • ⅔ cup red pepper jelly
  • 2 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tsp. prepared horseradish
  • 1 tsp. orange zest
  • 2 cups Capatriti® 100% Pure Olive Oil


The Sauce
Combine red pepper jelly, spicy brown mustard, prepared horseradish, orange zest, and EVOO. Set aside.

The Tomatoes
Heat 100% Pure OO in a cast iron skillet. Meanwhile, whisk together white cornmeal mix and panko in a shallow dish. Place the flour in a separate shallow dish. In a medium bowl, whisk eggs until foamy.

Coat each tomato in flour (shaking off any excess), followed by the egg, and finally the cornmeal panko mixture.
Fry the tomatoes (3 – 5 minutes per side).

Season as desired and top with pepper-jelly-EVOO sauce. Plate and share.
