Harborside Fried Yellow Tomatoes

Yup! We said yellow tomatoes. There are some of us who adore the the less acidic taste of a yellow tomato and for those of you are susceptable to acidity, this recipe is right up your alley. Of course you can vary this recipe by using green tomatoes and once in a while you may even see purple tomatoes in your market, Use you imagination, but above all, use the best tasting Crab Bisque on the market today.....OURS!

2 yellow tomatoes

Salt and cracked black pepper to taste

1/2 cup milk

1 egg, beaten

1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup dried bread crumbs

1/2 teaspon cayenne pepper

Vegetable oil, as needed

1 (10.5-oz) can Bar Harbor® New England Style Crab Bisque

1/4 cup light or half-and-half cream

1 red tomato, diced, to garnish on top

Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Slice tomatoes into 1/2-inch slices and sprinkle each side with salt and cracked pepper; set aside.

In a large, shallow bowl, whisk together mik and egg; set aside. In another large shallow bowl, blend cornmeal, flour, bread crumbs and cayenne pepper; set aside.

In a saucepan, whisk together crab bisque and cream. Heat over low and keep warm while cooking tomatoes.

Dip tomatoes in crumbs, then egg wash and crumbs again, making sure you pat the crumb mixture firmly onto each side of the tomato. Set on a plate and repeat with remaining slices.

In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add as many tomato slices as will fit and cook 3-5 minutes per side, or until lightly browned. Remove and repeat with any remaining slices, adding more oil as needed.

To serve, ladle equal amounts of warmed crab bisque onto each of four serving plates. Lay two grilled slices of green tomato onto bisque and top with chopped red tomatoes and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
