1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Seasoned batter mix
2 cups Japanese breadcrumbs
3 green tomatoes, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
Salt and pepper to taste
Vegetable oil
3 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Combine first 3 ingredients in a shallow dish or pan; set aside.

Prepare 1 cup seasoned batter according to package directions; set aside.

Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish.

Sprinkle tomatoes evenly with salt and pepper to taste. Dredge tomato slices in flour mixture, dip in batter, and dredge in breadcrumbs.

Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches in a large nonstick skillet; heat over medium high to 360°; fry tomatoes, in batches, 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on a wire rack over paper towels.

Place tomatoes on individual serving plates; drizzle evenly with 1/2 cup Roasted Red Pepper Rémoulade, and sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Serve immediately with remaining rémoulade.
