  1. Add an inch of vegetable oil to a skillet and heat to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix the flour and seasoning salt in a shallow dish. Add the eggs to a second shallow dish and beat together. Add the panko to a third shallow dish.
  3. Dredge a few slices of the tomatoes in the seasoned flour, then dip them in the egg and lastly cover them in the panko breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate and repeat with the remaining tomato slices.
  4. Fry the tomatoes in batches until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes per batch. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with flaky sea salt and pepper.
  5. When you are ready to assemble the salad, arrange the fried tomatoes and mozzarella on a platter, alternating between the two. Drizzle over the balsamic glaze in a thin stream, then sprinkle over the basil leaves and serve immediately.
