Tasty Tuesday: Evelyn Couch Fried Green Tomatoes with a Cajun Aioli sauce

4 large green tomatoes
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 cup Cajun seasoning
1 quart vegetable oil for frying

-Slice tomatoes 1/2 inch thick. Discard the ends.
-Whisk eggs and milk together in a medium-size bowl.
-Scoop flour into a bowl.
-Mix cornmeal, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning in another bowl.
-Dip tomatoes into flour to coat.
-Then dip the tomatoes into milk and egg mixture.
-Dredge in breadcrumbs to completely coat.
-In a large skillet, pour vegetable oil (enough so that there is 1/2 inch of oil in the pan) and heat over a medium heat.
-Place tomatoes into the frying pan in batches of 4 or 5, depending on the size of your skillet. When the tomatoes are browned, flip and fry them on the other side.
-I use a counter top fryer with oil, if this is what you use you will need to flip them over because they will float and one side will be darker than the other
-Do not crowd the tomatoes, they should not touch each other.
-Drain them on paper towels.

Cajun Aioli Sauce
1/2 cup of mayo

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/8 cup of Cajun seasoning
