Air Fryer Fried Green Tomatoes

These air fryer green tomatoes deliver a crunchy outside with a smooth succulent inside.  The perfect summer food you will ever devour.  


Fried Green Tomatoes


The air fryer is the perfect way to cook fried green tomatoes.  I like to call them healthified fried green tomatoes.  To finish them off, you can sprinkle a generous drop of coarse salt, salty capers, or a few drops of hot sauce.


To make air fryer green tomatoes, start with medium size unripe tomatoes.  

I like to use light green tomatoes that are pale green and have a little pink coming through the skin.  They are not quite so sour.  





Don't make the mistake of choosing green heirloom tomatoes.  Green heirloom tomatoes are fully ripe tomatoes, a different variety of tomatoes.

I love combining self rising cornmeal and panko for the coating, and of course, don't forget to double dip to get the most delicious, crunchy outside, divine.





I also leave the seasoning for the green tomatoes to just what is in the self rising flour that way, the tomato is succulent and not mushy when frying.  

But don't think they are bland.  The generous sprinkle of coarse salt at the end elevates these fried green tomatoes to superb!
