My name is Shannon Overmiller. I’m the executive chef at The Majestic in Old Town Alexandria. Today, I will be demonstrating for you fried green tomatoes which is a Southern classic.
Today, the tools that you may find necessary are a mixer or as option you can use a hand whisk or even a blender whatever is available to you. Then you also have to have a fryer, or of course the option is just a pot filled with canola oil, say four cups or so for frying adequately at 400 degrees using a thermometer. You will also need to note some things about safety which we’ll go into more detail as I go through the demonstration. You need to be careful when placing the green tomatoes into the fryer, basic knife skills as well.
So, let’s get ready to cook. And I will show you what we need. One of the garnishes for fried green tomato is a garlic aioli or a garlicky mayonnaise. Some of the ingredients necessary for the aioli will be cayenne, a pinch, three whole eggs, two yolks, one teaspoon of chopped garlic, to your taste adjustable. Then you also need salt to taste, the juice of two to three lemons to taste. And you also will need, canola oil three cups, two cups of olive oil. Shall we begin?
