Ingredients

Sumac Vinaigrette:

Directions

Preheat approximately 2-inches oil in large, heavy skillet to 325 degrees F. An electric- fryer can be used.

Sprinkle both sides of tomatoes with salt and pepper. Combine the cornmeal, flour and Creole seasoning in a shallow dish. Dredge the tomatoes in the cornmeal mixture and fry until golden brown. Remove from the oil and drain on paper towels.

For the vinaigrette:

Add the vinegar, sumac, and salt and pepper to a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until combined. Remove and reserve 4 tablespoons. In a large bowl, add enough arugula for 4 servings. Pour the vinaigrette over the arugula and toss. Divide the arugula on serving plates, arrange 2 to 3 fried green tomatoes on the arugula and top with equal amounts of crabmeat. Drizzle reserved vinaigrette over the crabmeat and sprinkle with ground sumac. Serve immediately.
