Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Remoulade

Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab Remoulade

Not too long ago I made some fried green tomatoes with shrimp remoulade that was exceptionally good and left me wanting for more. One gracious commenter paved the way by mentioning a crab version which sounded perfect, especially considering that I just happened to have some crab in my freezer. Unfortunately I did not have the time to make it before leaving town and I feared that the green tomatoes might be done by the time I got back. This weekend my fears were laid to rest at the farmers market which had even more green tomatoes than when I left. I immediately grabbed some of those green tomatoes and whipped up a batch of fried green tomatoes with crab remoulade that turned out to be just as good as they had sounded, if not better. With my cravings satisfied for now, I contemplate what else I can do with fried green tomatoes.

GORGEOUS photo. Fantastic recipe. My hubby would give up college football tomorrow if I would make this for him.

Gorgeous pic Kevin! Borrowing from your pic of the Shrimp and FGT po'boy, I think a FGT, slab of creamy Havarti and bacon or fried ham would be delish---with the remoulade spread on a lightly toasted baguette, of course.

MMMMMmmmm, I'm making myself hungry.

This dish looks AMAZING! I have never tried remoulade sauce or fried green tomatoes, but I just bought a deep fryer and I am feeling adventurous! Thanks for the great recipe :)

I think we've had such unseasonably warm weather that the tomato plants are super confused! I've seen a lot of green tomatoes around also.

This sounds delicious!

I can dig this, as I grew up on it growing up in Texas with a LA mom!

Great food lately, you make me so hungry!

This takes me back to a BL-FGT that I tried a while back. Toast, thick sliced bacon, lettuce, and a fried green tomato. And, either a dab of ranch dressing or a sauce similar to what you would dip a bloomin' onion in. Gosh, this makes me hungry! Great recipe, btw.
