fried green tomatoes

Most recipes for fried green tomatoes involve eggs, making a sort of batter. This is delicious, but here is a more simple and quicker version:

1 or 2 green tomatoes

2 tablespoons of corn meal (polenta)

pinch of salt

1/4 tsp paprika

4 slices of salami, garlic sausage or 3 rashers of bacon

oil for frying

Mix the corn meal, salt and paprika and spread on a plate. Slice the tomatoes about 0.5 cm thick, and press both sides into the corn meal mixture.

Cut the salami into quarters and fry in a little oil until crisp, set aside. Add a little more oil to the same pan and fry the tomatoes until brown on each side. Serve with the salami. Serves 1
