Fried Green Tomatoes with Jalapeño Tomato Sauce

I love Fried Green Tomatoes. We had and incredible Breakfast of Fried Green Tomato Eggs Benedict at a Restaurant in Rosemary Beach, Florida.
I decided to add this Sauce to the Fried Green Tomato recipe and serve it as an Entrée.








Fried Green Tomatoes with Jalapeño Tomato Sauce


2 Large Green Tomatoes, sliced 1/2" thick.
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Buttermilk
1/4 C Vegetable Oil for frying
1 C Cornmeal
1/4 C Flour
1/2 tsp of Cajun Seasoning

Season both sides of the Tomato slices with Salt and Pepper.
Place them on the paper towel lined rack and allow them to sit for at least 5 minutes.

Put them in a shallow bowl and cover completely with Buttermilk.

In a large skillet on medium heat:
Oil, enough for frying.
Heat the oil.

In another shallow bowl:
Flour
Cornmeal
Seasoning
Whisk well

Dredge the tomatoes in the Cornmeal/Flour mix.
Coat both sides and the edges.
Gently place them immediately in the hot oil,
Fry for 3 - 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Don't crowd the pan.
When each batch is fried, put them on the foil lined pan in the oven to keep warm until all slices are fried.
Keep them warm until ready to assemble.
