Fried Green Tomatoes with Shrimp and Remoulade Sauce

Serves 4
  • Fried tomatoes:
  • 3 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/4 cups hot sauce, such as Louie's All Spiced Up Sauce
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon dry Italian dressing mix
  • 2 green tomatoes, sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • Shrimp:
  • 2 tablespoons dry crab boil seasoning, such as Zatarain's
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce, such as Louie's All Spiced Up Sauce
  • 8 large shrimp, shells on
  • Remoulade sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (preferably Blue Plate)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Creole mustard, such as Zatarain's
  • 1 scant tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 dashes of hot sauce, such as Louie's All Spiced Up Sauce
  • Shredded lettuce, for serving
  • 1. For the tomatoes: Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F and heat the oil in a deep cast-iron or other skillet to 350 degrees F. Beat the eggs, milk, and hot sauce in a shallow dish. Put the flour into another shallow dish. In a third shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs and dry Italian dressing mix. Dip the tomato slices in the flour, then the egg wash, and then the breadcrumb mixture. (Hint: Use one hand for the egg wash and the other for the dry flour and breadcrumbs.) Transfer to the oil and fry until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve.

  • 2. For the shrimp: Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan and add the crab boil, onion, lemon, and hot sauce. Stir and add the shrimp. Boil until the shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Drain, cool, and peel.

  • 3. For the remoulade sauce: Mix together the mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce in a bowl.

  • 4. To serve: Line a plate with shredded lettuce. Add 2 slices fried green tomatoes. Top each tomato with 1 boiled shrimp. Fill a squeeze bottle with the remoulade sauce and drizzle decoratively.
