Mama’s Fried Okra With Green Tomatoes

“When it comes to frying okra no one does it better than my Mama. She uses a simple method that makes delicious crispy fried okra every time. My family has always added a chopped up green tomato when frying okra, they two go really well together making for a wonderful side dish to any meal. With acres of fields planted with vegetables, okra was also fresh when fried as I was growing up. Where I live now, fresh okra is hard to come by but frozen okra works just as well.” – Janet

Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp Remoulade Recipe

“Last week a kind reader left a comment on my fried green tomatoes recipe suggesting that I try fried green tomato shrimp remoulade. I am always looking for new ways to enjoy fried green tomatoes and there is no way that you could go wrong topping them off with some shrimp in a tasty remoulade sauce. As luck would have it, I remembered seeing some green tomatoes at the farmers market last week so the fried green tomato shrimp remoulade made it to my meal plan really quickly! 🙂 This recipe is pretty easy and you can even make the remoulade sauce the day before which works out for the best as the flavours get a chance to mingle overnight.” – Kevin
