Fried Green Tomatoes:

Coconut oil, for frying

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cayenne

1 cup flour

3 eggs, beaten

2 green tomatoes, sliced

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup buttermilk

2 tablespoons barbecue sauce

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 teaspoon lime juice

1 teaspoon brown sugar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dredge the slices of tomato into the flour, then the eggs and finally in the seasoned cornmeal. Place the breaded tomatoes in the oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove and drain the tomatoes on paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. For the sauce: Mix the mayonnaise, buttermilk, barbecue sauce, vinegar, lime juice and brown sugar in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve the sauce alongside the fried tomatoes.
