  • Slice the green tomatoes 1/4 inch thick and place on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Salt the tomatoes on both sides and let sit for 10 minutes. Do not skip this step, it helps draw the extra water out of the tomatoes.

  • Pour the buttermilk into a pie pan or shallow dish. Add tomatoes to the buttermilk. To make your own buttermilk add 1/2 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to the milk and allow to sit for 1-2 minutes. Dairy-free use almond, cashew, or coconut milk.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet.

  • Combine the flour, cornmeal, cornstarch and season salt in a pie pan or shallow dish. Mix until fully combined.

  • Dip buttermilk covered tomatoes into the gluten-free cornmeal-flour mixture. Cover both sides of the tomatoes with the mixture.

  • Carefully place the tomatoes into the hot oil. Turn to cook on both sides. Fry until golden.

  • Remove from pan and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Serve with remoulade sauce and while still hot. Enjoy!
