Fried Green Tomatoes
Ever since I saw the movie 'Fried Green Tomatoes' I've wanted to eat some fried green tomatoes. In fact there's little else I remember about the film except the scenes of the protagonist frying some green tomatoes inside a frying pan.
Anyway after a grueling morning visiting some Spanish utility offices where you were kept waiting whether there was anyone else waiting or not - and of course the waiting time was even longer when there actually were other people waiting - I saw a grocer selling the most glorious looking green tomatoes I'd ever seen in my life.
So after purchasing 2 of these beauties, I made some lovely fried green tomatoes using this very simple recipe. They were succulent, juicy and crunchy and had this aroma that made me think of spring.
Isn't Spain wonderful?
